Default Ritebrew.com?

Hey, I was browsing though different LHBS's and ran across ritebrew.com. Their prices seem unbeatable as it is, but while browsing through bulk grain, I noticed they sell Breiss, and GWM (I think it stands for Great Western Malting), which costs substantially less!

Has anyone had any experience with ritebrew?

Does anyone know if there is any difference between Breiss and GWM as far as taste and/or quality?

Thanks!

I've bought supplies from them a couple time - faucets, shanks, tubing and some other miscellaneous parts. Never any brewing ingredients though.

Great prices and fast shipping.

I far prefer GW malt over Briess. Much better flavor.

Beware on yeast and hops though. The yeast I've gotten has been pretty close to expired and a pack of amarillo smelled like straight up parmesean.

They are offering $5 off $50+ and $10 off $100+. With the low bulk grain prices I might have to try them.

I just perused their site and it appears that they are out of stock on A LOT of items. Also, they don't have flat rate shipping so I could imagine that the shipping would be pretty steep.

That's what kept me from buying at the moment. I did make a shopping cart and for a $70 order, I got $20 shipping. For all the stuff I was buying, $90 was still a bargain, but not everything I needed was on stock. I'll try ordering soon, and see if the quality of the products are adequate.
