Briess is the Melba toast of 2-row base malts. :)
That is a strange analogy.

Crazy. I too listen to Scandinavian death metal when adding roast malts at the end of mash. Deep down, aren't we all really just the same.

Honestly, I would party with the Mongster any day of the week.  He has an excellent sense of humor, IMO.

At least it's not a durian.

There's something I need to try before I die, at least once, since it's such a love/hate thing and bet I might love it.

Interesting. 

I just took my latest lager strain out to 5 repitches with my best results in my last 3. The last two lagers (Helles and Pre-prohibition) each took BOS at separate comps a week apart. I feel that the strain could easily have gone a couple more rounds as well.

Bottom-cropped yeast cultures can be serially repitched more seven times in a home brewery that has conical fermentation vessels if attention is paid to sanitation, cropping, and pitching.  The number one thing that limits repitching is house microflora load.  The load increases with every repitch after the initial infection. The two mutations that one has to watch for are loss of ability to ferment maltotriose and loss of flocculation.  Maltotriose-challenged yeast cells settle before non-maltotriose-challenged yeast cells. Large breweries crop from the middle of the cone before the diacetyl rest in order to reduce the number of maltotriose-challenged and flocculation-challenged yeast cells in the crop.

This is a pretty solid deal.... I'm just weary on the freshness. I don't get too bent out of shape over malt freshness. I usually buy a couple hundred pounds of base malt at a time when I find it on sale. This usually lasts me the year. I just wonder if this has been sitting around in a warehouse for a couple of years. You'll have to let us know!

I'm only finding it as an add-on item.  Gotta buy $25 of other stuff first.

4 x 10lb sacks goes to ~$26. It worked for me.

Man, I wish I had a use for this stuff because that price can't be beat.

Gotta think inside the box. :D

I am a percentages and points per pound per gallon guy.  I can formulate the grist for any recipe given its original gravity and its grist percentages using little more than pencil and paper.  With that said, the reason why the numbers seem odd is because the recipe was clearly originally formulated using the metric system and converted to American units of measurement (a.k.a. US customary units) using a calculator or brewing software.
