I am working on enabling the prices to automatically change based on total amount of grains ordered.

Having an admin over ride would be nice. Maybe the admin could choose a pricing tier that is based total weight quantity. Thoughts?

Case in point, 2-row from Canadia versus Great Western. Some of y'all chose the cheaper, some the more expensive.

I suppose that the answer may be, "it depends on the type of beer you're brewing", but that isn't a clear enough answer for me. Anyone have any thoughts to share on which company to go with, and why?
Well, while Bill is right there is also other factors that come into play. For example take pilsner malt. The Canadian version is cheaper than ordering from a German maltster, although not by that much, some would argue in this case that even though the malt probably comes from a very similar seed, the growing processes and locations will effect the overall flavor of the malt. For those who enjoy brewing to style, or are trying to accurately clone a beer that uses German pilsner there is no substitute to German pilsner malt. Again, however, this is totally preference.

I am only posting this because its the Chicago group. Has anyone here that lives on the West burbs ever build their electric brewery? I have all the parts just need the motivation or if someone else is building a Kal clone would be cool to build side by side.

Thanks

Pat
