Default Gambrinus Malt

Does anyone have any thoughts on Gambrinus malts?


I'm thinking about buying a sack of their Munich Light, but it's more expensive than some of the alternatives. Is it worth it?


Also, it looks like Gambrinus Malt got bought out by Cargill. Does anyone know if their quality has gone down since?

It's a group buy from North Country Malt. So, the prices are really good relative to my LHBS or online stores.

The Gambrinus Munich is the most expensive Munich I can choose from, but the malt analysis is the closest to what I want, as well.

It's about 10% more than the next best Munich (based on the analysis).
