Malt running low.....
« on: July 06, 2011, 02:56:53 AM »
I am down to my last 30 pounds of base malt.......

Where's the best deal on grain right now?

A while ago a new web-vendor was discussed with very good prices/free shipping. What was the URL again, and how did that pan out?

Thanks.

The prices include shipping.  I bought a sack shortly after they opened and was pleased with the experience.  Shipping was quick and I got what I ordered.  I was going to buy another sack a couple weeks or so but they were out of what I wanted.

30 lbs.!  I would be in complete panic mode.

I have unopened sacks of Weyerman Bohemian Pilsner, Crisp Maris Otter, and MaltEurop 2-row at the present.

I have opened sacks (with anywhere from 10-40 lbs. of malt left in them) of Global Pilsner, MaltEurop 2-row, Gambrinus Wheat, and Gleneagle Maris Otter.

Life is good.  Although it would be better with a sack of Vienna in stock.

I thought they weren't selling to homebrewers anymore?

That being said, Brew Brothers, which some of you probably saw around NHC, apparently has really good prices (). Shipping seems decent too, although they're semi local to me (30 minute drive), so I think I'm going to check them out here soon.

They do if you were a customer prior to the change in policy. In other words if you were "grandfathered in".

I ordered some hops from them a couple years ago. So I guess that counts. Do they have a price list anywhere? I think they have a warehouse in Vancouver, WA - right across the river. I wonder if I could go there and pick some up.

Who is "they"? North Country?

You'll need to call them and get your customer password. You will then be able to view their pricing online.

Good to know. I may give that a try, I may not. Do you happen to know general price ranges? I'm curious if it's worth the trouble seeing as I can get them pretty cheap locally. (GW 2-row: $29. Best pils: $45. Weyermann pils: $39)

its not worth your while - I bought Best Pils for around $34 on my last order and then paid around $25 in shipping.  But your shipping is going to be more I would assume given your locale.

Thanks Blatz. $25 shipping for a single bag? Or for several? If the latter then that isn't bad, but you'r right - if they're shipping from the main warehouse then it would be more for me.

While we're on the topic, is Best that much better than Weyermann? I've heard nothing but rave reviews but haven't tried it yet. Always had good results with Weyermann, and they treated us well when we visited last year too.

$25 per single bag.

I prefer Best to Weyermann, but I have no qualms using Weyermann.  Best just has a richness that Weyermann doesn't.  I've been digging a blend of Weyermann and Best recently in my lighter lagers - ryan6458 turned me on to that - its good stuff!
