Labrat,
Thanks again for taking care of our Boulder friends. I still use my Corona mill with a fine crush I'm averaging in the low 90% eff ratings. I think the Corona's work good enough to not warrant a barley crusher anytime in the near future, well at least until I figure out my bulk grain storage then I may upgrade to a bench mounted motor driven unit. My current plans are to purchase most of my supplies once or twice a year to save on all the bi-weekly trips to Denver for more supplies. I rarely leave the LHBS under $200 and I always pick up a few extra bits a pieces, most of which I don't really need, just can't help it

I'm not in on the GB, but am a satisfied CMC customer.

I have a cream ale with CMC 2-row, polenta, and rice in the final post-fining clearing stage now. I'll try to remember to bump this thread with my results.

I've done several batches with CMC 2-row now, and I'm very happy with the final product.

I've made roughly 14 batches since May using CMC malt as my base. In my opinion it is the perfect base malt. It provides a very neutral background for you to modify with specialty malts.

If you would care to, it would make a very light, clear pale ale or lager.

Here is a shot of a blonde ale I made with the CMC malt.



That was made with 95% CMC malt and 5% Melanoiden malt.

I have mostly made American Pale Ales and IPAs with it. I have ventured far enough outside that standard to have made a couple of brown ales and even a Cherry Wheat.

Risk came by this evening to pick up his 200 lbs. He had no problem with getting whole kernel instead of milled. I have offered the use of my motorized two roller mill whenever he wants to brew. He also seemed to enjoy the Autumn Ale I made with the CMC malt. This was an Octoberfest style made with Nottingham yeast.

I am currently enjoying a Two-Hearted Ale clone made with the CMC malt.

I look forward to everyone else's thoughts as they brew with this malt.

I've already brewed several beers with it, although most had varying degrees of either roasted/specialty malts, or flavorful yeast. The CMC 2-row has been fine in those beers.
Incidentally, I've stored crushed malt, double-bagged and in a rubbermaid in my garage for several months with no oxidation or other off-flavors I could detect. I credit our dry CO climate for the good storage.

Time to get a mill.

I'm trying to decide on a style to feature the malt over hops (most of my brews are the reverse). I'm thinking maybe a California Common or amber. Thoughts?

How about an Alt or Munich Helles brewed with ale yeast?

I made a 5 gallon batch of blonde yesterday with Cascades @ 60 and 30....I'm looking forward to trying the final product.

I will probably be in for another grain order in Mid April......

by mid apr I'll be well through this order. I'm game for helping with another group buy. still haven't brewed a batch yet my Jeep broke down Fri morning fortunatly it was only .02 worth of glue on a cam shaft sensor (Replaced for $45) and not the PCM which would have cost $850 and canclelled xmas.

Planning on brewing a double batch this coming weekend. A blonde and ?? what ever my stores are low on I guess.

I just bit the bullet and ordered a Barley Crusher along with my specialty malts for my first brew with this CMC 2-row. I'm going to do a late-hopped version of Ed's Haus Pale, then a Black Butte Porter clone over Christmas. I've got two kegs arriving soon that need to be filled. Good times.
