My LHBS happened across it and the owner ordered it for me on a lark, to see if I would want it. Since he was nice enough to do that, I took him up on the bag. It came in a burlap sack (outer covering, with a modern plastic liner as used in packaging malt generally). I don't know where he ordered it from, but he said basically that craft malting is catching on big, including going for period malts (based on old records, I guess).
I definitely will make a nice bitter - it is my favorite English style; but with a whole sack to use, I may also go with a Stock Ale for putting up.
