I've used Crisp, Thomas Fawcett, Glen Eagles and imo they are all high quality however, my preference is Thomas Fawcett because the big plump kernels. Crisp is a great bu when I can't get TF...very consistent and good yields on the efficiency. Glen Eagles is one if not the only one that still does traditional floor malting. I find their product marvelous with minimal deviation and I do like that they are kilned a little bit darker than the others. I think they are around 4L...nice malt. Having said all of that, I can't find a cost effective way of getting any MO down here in southern New Mexico. Even buying bulk at 22 sacks a palate from NCM was going to cost me 750 bucks in shipping......ouch! So, I've been pleased with using Briess Pale Ale malt for 25 bucks a sack and tossing in 1/2 lb of Munich malt to increase malt profile when necessary. Man, I miss Certified Foods in Cali!
