Yeah, with no contact or ordering info. I guess I'll need to grab their number and keep it in a safe place.

Oh, I guess I was too dumb to notice the phone numbers for each distro point at the bottom of the home page. What else is new?

Appears to me... Homebrewer's need not call.  :D

I wanted to order a full palette of NCM back a few months and they wanted 750 clams to ship it to Las Cruces, NM. Now I go through my local brewpub and can get any Briess product by the sack for 25 bucks. I'm happy with that being there is no HB shop in town. Just a quasi shop that is really a pool and spa place. I get yeast from there during the hot months and that's about all.

So where do we get Best Malz pilsner from now???? Or can someone recommend me a good Pils malt that NB or Midwest or someone else sells.   One Pils malt I do NOT like is Crisp Euro Pils. It always comes out way too sweet somehow, even when it's fermented down to 1.010

I too was distressed to see the homebrew catalog disappear.
I have found them very competitive for high quality malt- like the Baird Maris Otter and the Best line very much.

I live about 2 hours from their Plattsburg NY warehouse and visited it to save shipping Nov 09.
They are not well configured for small orders- cramped office and overstocked warehouse so I am not surprised.

Still I hope I can get a few bags dropping in. Will have to find another source otherwise.
Like the $0.70/pound versus > $1.75/pound at the LHBS or on-line + shipping.

Cheers
