All the bags I saw were 55lbs. The Great Western crystal is .63 cents a pound.

I can use some crystal malts if necessary, but not a lot.

I'm in for 1 bag of Bairds Maris Otter BD-MOPA, and 1 bag Canada Malting Company 2 row CM-2ROW. A friend of mine is in for a bag of CM-2ROW as well.

Most people keep a supply of base malt on hand. What you get and use depends on your preference of what beer you like to make. 2-row will work fine as a base malt for most beers. (not including wheat beers but 2-row is used as a part of those alot as well) I mean you cant really make a Pilsner w/o Pils malt. I personally like Maris Otter as a base for most of my beers. If a recipe calls for 2-row I almost always substitute MO, but that is my preference.

As for Crystal and other ad malts, it is again what you use alot of. I personally use a lot of C-40 and 60, and I substitute alot of Pale Chocolate in some of my darker recipes.

If you are just starting out and you are still using extracts as your base, go in and chop up a couple bags of specialty malts that you'd like to try. This will give you the chance to cheaply get some malts to experiment with. If you are not set up for all grain brewing you should avoid base malts as they will not be necessary for your purposes.

I'd say go in a split a bag of C-40 or C-60 and a bag Pale Chocolate. Then make some killer pale ale and awesome brown ales with it.

I am up for splitting up the specialties. I'd like to get about 10-15# of Crystal 40 or 60 and the same of pale chocolate...So a 1/4 bag or a 1/5 of a bag doesnt matter to me...it is the difference between 14# and 11, so no biggie, I am flexible.

That is true, but I can only use so much Pale Chocolate and Crystal Malts.

If I am not mistaken we are at 12 bags committed, without any of the specialty grain splits. I know another guy on here is going to buy at least 5 bags and maybe more.

Thanks for getting this together 1234! You can sign me up for...

Grain:
1/5 bag Caramel Crystal 60L
1/5 bag Chocolate
1/5 bag Pale 2 Row

Also, I noticed LME and hops being listed on the product sheet. I would go in half with anyone on the items below if possible.

30 lb. (BR-PL-L60) Briess Light Liquid Extract 60 pound pail $73
1/4 lb. East Kent Golding
1/4 lb. Fuggles
1/4 lb. Hallertau
1/4 lb. Cascade

Still new to this, so if some of that can't be ordered, it's cool. I'll keep thinking and looking at recipes in the mean time to see if I can add anything else. I'm currently an extract brewer too so can't really purchase too much grain other than the specialty stuff, but the LME and hops look very attractive if possible to buy.

I think we may have a hard time doing any of the hops. If I have read the stuff correctly it looks like we can order 11 pounds or 44 pounds of each type. The 60 pound pail might be able to be done, but it may be difficult to get on a pallet. Let's see how this goes and we will see what can be done. You could probably get some 2 Row from one of the other guys who are going to order more than 1 bag of it.

So far it looks like we will be adding a bag of crystal 60L & a bag of Pale Chocolate.
