Great Fermentations https://www.greatfermentations.com has Sugar Creek Bloody Butcher Malt and Amanda White Corn malt. Both are very good.

Enjoyed the podcast!  Especially information on Crisp Chevallier malt and Bloody Butcher Corn malt. I recently brewed a Amber Ale with Chevallier and the malt flavor was awesome. An IPA with Chevallier will be a future brew. Keep up the good work on the podcasts!
Is there an online source for Bloody Butcher malt? I've been wanting to try this out since I use a fair amount of corn in my brewing, but I haven't found it through through the usual channels, or by using my google-fu.

Bloody Butcher has a unique and delicious flavor, but don't expect it to taste like the corn you're used to using. Drew used it in the cream ale I tasted and you would never know it was supposed to be a cream ale. It's a great malt alternative, but to me it kinda demands to be used in new recipes, not subbed for corn in an existing recipe.

I bought it directly from sugar creek, but I think the minimum order was 10 lbs.  I brewed an American Pils with it and have a hard time identifying what it's contributing in it.

Interesting.  I could tell right away that it didn't taste like corn to me.

Last year I brewed a Cream Ale with 17% Sugar Creek Bloody Butcher Malt and 73% Sugar Creek Pale Malt. I thought it had a bit of sweet corn flavor. Maybe my perception was influenced because it had malted corn in it? I may have perceived it differently if it was a blind tasting. I liked the beer a lot so I brewed another that is fermenting now with 25% Bloody Butcher corn.

I found a little more information on malted corn from Riverbend Malt House:

Riverbend Malt House (White Corn)
FLAVORS Fresh Cornbread, Earthy
GOOD FOR  American Lager

River Bend Malt House (Bloody Butcher Corn)
FLAVORS Baking spices, clove
GOOD FOR  American Lager, Bourbon
