It's a nice, minimal-flavor-imparting, standard US 2row malt.  Works well for those beers where you aren't looking for significant malt character.

BTW, nice find jimmy!  I grabbed some myself. I can't find anything local for THAT price.

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.

Gotta think inside the box. :D

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!

Briess is the Melba toast of 2-row base malts. :)

I've never had Melba toast but I imagine the analogy is that briess brewers malt is like stale toast compared to fresh toasted bread. I've used plenty of rahr, malteurop, and briess to know that they are interchangeable in recipes that call for a (virtually) flavorless base malt. IMO, of course.

50 lbs showed up today and it's Great Western 2-row :D
I'm good with that! I never see GW products in my market.

This was the 10 pounds for $6.71 deal? I've never run across GW out my way either, so I'd certainly take a shot at this to give their malt a try.
