bes-tex in san angelo has 30 lbs bags of dry molasses but I don't know the cost off the top of my head. 60 pounds and shipping might be around $70. 30 pounders arent on their web site but call and they might be able to help you.

The farm and ranch co-op in New Braunfels sells bulk molasses for about a dollar per gallon if you bring in your own container. A gallon weighs 15 pounds so if you were thinking of having it shipped, keep that in mind.

I just bought some from my local co-op yesterday. They say theirs weighs 11 pounds per gallon. Wonder what the difference is. I bought 50# for nine dollars. I have bought elsewhere and used the dry from Tractor supply but this is by far the cheapest. Will see how I like it when I use it.

If you purchase the molasses in a feed store, I assume that is not organic, so does that matter? Also what are the ingredients in the molasses, what does it contain. I am referring to the liquid and the dry.
Thanks. I don't think I asked my question very well. What I mea to ask is, if one were to make one's own dry molasses by spraying molasses onto bran, chopped up corn husks, whatever -- would one thin the molasses a bit with water before spraying onto the dry stuff? Then when it dries, sprinkling it around as you describe.
I ask because this whole molasses thing reminds me very much of the EM which is some ferment from Japan, where you order the starter and mix it with molasses and water, let it ferment, then use it for basically everything but brushing your teeth....including making bokashi (EM on bran which is used to compost food scraps with some kind of anaerobic fermentation process). Making one's own without paying for starter seems the way to go!
