Default What's in your stock?

Just getting an idea what people like to keep on hand. Really just grain & hops unless there's something you would like to mention.


Hops:
2 oz Cascade
1/2 oz Citra
1 oz EKG
2 oz Warrior

Grains:
15# 2 row
3# 60L
3# black patent
1# Carapils

Stuff:
Irish Moss
Turbinado
PH5
Gypsum
Primin' sugar


I'd like to stock more but don't have the equip to vac seal the hops and need another bucket for grains. What do you have?

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

i buy 50 # sacks of grain and store them in home depot buckets. I usually have pils and 2 row on hand. I have probably 12 specialty grains (most of the crystals, some wheat, chocolate, roasted barley, munich, vienna, black patent, etc) on hand that range from 2-5 # of each, depending on how often they get used. And probably have about 10 varieties of hops (cascade, amarillo, columbus, chinook, hallertau, goldings, saaz, simcoe, centennial, magnum) on hand, all vacuum sealed into 1 oz increments.

Sacks of 2row, 6row, and Maris Otter. Was keeping Flaked Maize but I may switch to sacks of corn and cooking it (cheaper, may taste better). I bought a 5lb bag of Crystal 20, 40, 60, 80, and 120. I go through 5lb bags of Black Barley and Chocolate Malt. I'll get 1lb bags here and there of different grains. Last year I bought 6lbs of hops. I am about to do the same within the next month.

I've got about 13 pounds of Marris Otter, 25 pounds of 2-row; 1 lb each of Czech Saaz, Hallertau, Willamette and Cascade; 1/2 pound of a couple other hops that I'm forgetting the names of right now.

A variety of hops, usually whatever I have left over from whatever I brewed previously or when I find a good deal online I order a lot for commonly used hops. (got a pound of cascade on order with More Beer as it was on clearance for 99 cents for 2 ounces)

I use the bulk buy program at my LHBS which allows me to buy 50 pounds at a time and only take home what I need to use that day. It's a 4 minute drive so no need to stock up at home. I do buy hops by the pound but use 1/2 pound per brew so they don't stick around long.

I do like to have a couple of packs of yeast in the fridge, just in case.
