I got mine mailorder from Colonel Johns (Boulder, CO) for about $10 I think.

I've used the bagged extract from American Brewmaster quite a bit. I prefer
its quality to canned -- it's cleaner. It's also cheaper to ship, and a lot
easier to get the last bit of extract out of the bag than the can: just
heat the bag in the microwave to soften the extract, then squeeze like a
toothpaste tube. (next they'll have pump dispensers :-)
