Im looking for cheap pilsner malt
« on: April 03, 2021, 06:03:02 PM »
Hi all, i used to buy pilsner malt locally, but the only brewshop its starting to use their malt for their own brewery, so they are all sold out, it was the only olace i could buy pilsner malt at a really cheap price.

They sell ireks pilsen malt, i found where they sell it at about 65 the sack of 55pounds, but shipping to miami ita about half of the cart, if i want 10 sacks its about 333 Us shipped to miami, and plus shipping to my country its about 300 USD extra ita about 120 the total for the sack of malt, and i used to buy it about 85, so its kinda killing me those prices.

Does anybody have anothe source of malt without thos killer shipping rates?

To get free shipping from MoreBeer you have to buy in 10 lb increments.

I've just tried out Atlantic brewing supply. Give them a shot they sell sacks on there but their free shipping threshold is 159

Become friends with a local brewery and see if they can buy a sack of malt for you on one of their shipments. You can 50-55lb sack for 20-30 bucks depending on their contract or the malt you buy.

I like Viking Pilsner in 10 lb sacks from Morebeer. It is $59.95 for 50 lbs shipped free. I like the taste.

I pay $51.15 for a 55lb bag of Avangard Pils at one of my LHBSs with my discount, but I am positive that they do not ship for free.  What is crazy is that Avangard Pils is cheaper per pound than Briess 2-Row at this store.  Avangard Pils is my base pils malt.  The flavor is not as deep as some of the other continental pils malts I have used, but it is head and shoulders above Briess 2-Row, which I feel is the Melba toast/tofu of base malts.
