When they got to the warehouse with the grain in there, the tour guide didn't mention it. So I says,
"So, where do you get your spelt?"
"That's classified information. Apparently it's pretty hard to find, so they don't really give out that information."
She already knew I was a homebrewer, and I wonder if she thought maybe I was a spy for the competition. I thought it was funny, because I happen to know that pretty all of the Michigan Micro Brewers are friendly with each other.
She did mention some state out west, but I don't know if I am interested enough to go through hoops to get it.
I got the business card for one of the guys who works there. He's a real smart dude, who I met at a homebrewing day last May. He gave a seminar on water. A REAL IN-DEPTH SEMINAR on water. She said he would probably give me the whole recipe if I asked. So we'll see what happens. It would be cool if they would toss a few pounds of Spelt my way. I'd repay in kind at the brewpub, of course!
