These prices are awesome! Do they also include shipping?

Is your order under your hbt user name or some other user name?

Shipping is $78 per pallet with 42 sacks per pallet max. This works out to $1.86 per sack. Everything else "rides" free. Note, that if we need to get a separate pallet for non grain stuff then all of the shipping charges are spread across the total number of sacks ordered.

Thanks for the info.

Lastly - How fresh is the malt when it arrives? If its mfg date is normally pretty recent I may really load up!

They supply most of the breweries in the Midwest. This means that they are moving a LOT of malt so it's safe to assume it's very fresh.

Also, the lot numbers on the sacks can be entered on the distributor's website to get the malt analysis info.

Chose the 12th just because I get paid in the middle of the month(s).
I would be cool with a 1/4 sack of Crystal if that works for everyone.
