Where to Buy Sacks of Base Malt in the Bay Area, CA?
« on: July 23, 2011, 06:43:52 PM »
I recently moved back to the east bay area, and while I live right near a great homebrew store, they charge way more than I am used to paying for full sacks of base malt. I can drive a ways and go to morebeer in Concord, and they sell domestic base malt pretty cheap, but I was hoping to find a true brewers' supply like I used to have when I lived in the Sacramento area - somewhere I could reliably buy sacks of various base malts from on the cheap... does anyone know of a good place to buy base malt in the bay area? I would be willing to travel as far Southwest as Fremont, as far Northwest as SF, as far Northeast as Concord, and as far Southeast as Livermore

I like MoreBeer in Concord (995 Detroit Ave). 'Course that may be the LHBS that you're referring to.

Morebeer is a bit of an inconvenient drive for me (I live in Berkeley, near the Albany border). And while Morebeer has great prices on domestic 2-row and pale ale malt, they charge a lot more for imported malts than I am used to paying.
