You buy Malt?  I thought you are given sacks from your sponsors.

Sometimes, but I buy plenty!

LOL. With all that brewing I'll bet you do!  LOL. Cheers!

I guess it's more accurate to say I USED to buy plenty...I brew so little these days that I haven't bought malt in 3 years.

I only make it to the brew shop a couple times each year, and I don't do online orders, so I tend to map out my brewing for the next several months and pick everything up in a bulk order.  When I need like 20# of Munich, Vienna, Pils, etc, it's a lot cheaper to just pick up a 55# sack (about half the price per pound).  So right now, I have bulk sacks of Rahr 2-row, Maris Otter, Pilsner, Vienna, and Simpsons Golden Promise.  I pick up about 5-10# of other malts at a time and generally have whatever I need for planned batches or other recipes I decide to brew on a whim.
