Default GF Malted Millet--CO Malting Company

Hi all, I wanted to share some information I have regarding the possible production and sale of malted millet from Colorado Malting Company. I heard a few weeks ago that they may be producing malted millet for sale to the home brewing community so I checked into it further. I recently sent an email inquiry regarding their millet and received notification that they would put my name an email on the list of potential interested parties. Today I received the following message from them:

Quote:
HOME BREWERS,

We are considering carrying millet malts on a full time basis and making them available to home brewers - So give us your feedback!!! - We want to give our wonderful home brewer customers entrance to this one of a kind ingredient.

We would like for you to let us know of your interest by pre-ordering some malted millet, either German, White or Red Millet.

Please follow these instructions: If we get enough pre-orders we will carry these products and have them available to you by November 2011. SO LET US HEAR IT IF YOU ARE INTERESTED.

In the subject line of the email:

Type (Your state) HB (for Home brewer) and Millet Order

In the Body of the email:

Tell us how much malted millet and what kind (see above) you would like to pre-order. We will only package in 50 lb bags.

So if you are interested in pre-ordering malted millet to try in your beers, get you pre-order in now. This early bird ordering will allow us to get you the malted millet asap. Thanks!
Please also include your name and phone in the email.

After we receive all the feedback we will contact you about your order. If we decide to proceed in malting millet for sale, we will at that point confirm your order. If we are not able to proceed in malting this millet for release, we will also let you know of that circumstance.

Home Brewer Price if we carry the malts will be $3.00 per lb for German, White and Red Malted Millet.

Thanks Guys!

Cheers,

Jason K. Cody

I'm guessing some of you already know about it, but I thought I'd post this in case some of you may be interested. I'm really excited about the potential commercial availability of GF malt and imagine that a lot of you out there would be excited to have it available as well. If that's the case, now's the time to rally our collective support and show them that there's a market for this product. They have an online email form that you can send your inquiries to at coloradomaltingcompany.com, or you can send an email to maltbarn@coloradomaltingcompany.com.

Cheers,
Austin

p.s. I hope posting this doesn't violate any forum rules. I'm not affiliated with the company, just really hopeful this product becomes available commercially.

I thought that they were only planning on distributing in colorado for a while? And does is it just me, or does it infer that you have to purchase in 50 pound batches ($150). A bit steep for me, unless there was a group buy in my area.

Wow...I am used to paying $0.80/lb for barley...that's quite the difference. Interesting stuff though, perhaps someone in or near Colorado could organize a bag or two split up...

No way I'm spending $150 + shipping... I'd much buy the gain in bulk and malt it myself.

Now if someone wants to buy 50lbs and sell me 5 0r 10lbs, I'd be willing to experiment with it.

I can tell you the difference between German, Red, and White Wheat...

Taste.

As for what these taste like, your guess is as good as mine.

what would the shipping for a 50# bag be? if you do 10# a batch you can get 5 batches. $30 of grain per batch. thats if shipping is free. if i could afford it i think it would be sweet. the real question is what is their profit margin for this?
