The alternative is to order multiple all-grain kits at once, as many places have discounted shipping. For instance, I can order enough individual kits from NB to be close in weight to the 50# bag, yet still only pay $7.99 shipping. If I order a 50# bag, I get it, but at regular shipping costs. The kits are really convenient since they come with the right amount of grain, and the hops included. Of course, you could order several additional pounds of grain for your own creations, all within the $7.99 for the entire order (except for their items clearly marked not to qualify).
Shop around and compare, then make your decision.

Last time i went to beercrafters the prices were a little more than i could deal with ($3/lb for base malt, $5/lb for specialty malts, $20 for 3 lbs of DME comahhhhhn!)
