    Well I'm overpaying then for sure. The best I can find 2-row is ~$1/lb at farmhouse. Where are you buying 2-row for 66 cents per pound?

    I buy base malt in bulk, 35 dollars for 55 lb sack, specialty grains are 1.80 lb at my LHBS, a lb of whole leaf chinook from hops direct is 15 dollars, (but they way overpack that lb, closer to 1.5 lb,) anyway a 2 oz bag of leaf is 2.00 at LHBS for the 70 min addition hops, yeast is 3.00 per packet

    Crap. I'll have to check with my LHBS. At those price cuts I can pay for a mill in no time.

    Btw, your sig is a riot.

    Advertised price at the LHBS for 2-row is 44.95 for a 50# sack. Better off to get the right amount from Farmhouse and have them mill it for me.

    A mill was the best cost saving thing I ever bought for brewing, I set my mill tight tight, and get 87% efficiency, so I can back my grainbill down to hit the target gravity, that saves me money,plus I buy grain in bulk, that saves right there, it keeps the cost down on beers like this one for sure.

    15 dollars for whole leaf hops, 8 dollars for specialty grains, 20 dollars in base malt, 6 dollars for yeast. I think you are overpaying somewhere.


    I'm poking around for the best deal on everything again for this recipe. You must he stealing base malt from you neighbor. Even bulk I can't get 2-row under $45 for a 50# sack, not including shipping.
