Should be no problem with posting something like that as long as it's legit.

http://www.valleymalt.com  Their prices are a little high compared to other things i have seen, but id rather pay more for a great product that supports the community.  Ive also sent them an email to see if they do tours/classes.  ill report if i find out anything useful!  Hope you guys give em a try.

I'd say if they made it into Zymurgy, they are legit.  ;D

Speaking of which, I am looking forward to trying to get some malt from Skagit Valley Malting whenever they start up. They don't have too much on their website, but I love buying from local small businesses.

I've used their malt. it's good. The kernals tend to be a little smaller than the big boys so set your gap accordinglingly but the beer was really nice. Did a rye IPA with some of their pale and some rye malt and wheat malt from them.

(Got those from a guy on here and never sent him a bottle of the finished product  :'( Sorry about that JohnnyB. I'm a slacker. Have to rebrew that with westcoast malt and send him some)
