Find the Best Deal on Sacks of Malt – Tips, Tricks & Sources


homebrew sack malt deals

Grains by the lb can generally be had for a reasonable price. They also generally qualify for free and flat rate shipping when a retailer offers that.  Full 50 or 55 lb sacks of malt are another story altogether. The per lb price of sacks can be tempting, but shipping charges can be confiscatory.

Bulk Malt Deal Tips and Tricks

Look at Total Cost

Price per lb delivered to your door is the most important thing when it comes to value. Biting on a low cost sack of grain with high shipping is equally as bad as biting on a high cost sack of grain with free shipping. Compare total cost. If free or flat rate shipping is an option always makes sure to put together an order that qualifies for discounted shipping.

Deals can periodically found on Amazon

Offerings and prices can vary wildly, but it’s worth a quick look when it comes time to buying grain.

Buy Local-ish…

Try the following shops, each has general geographic area to help…
