I try to keep a bag of 2-row, MO and pilsner on hand. When ever I go and buy anything else, I buy extra. If at all possible, I bump it up to 10 lbs so I get the better price.
This is roughly what I have on hand now and is probably a minimum of what I'll try to maintain.
20# white wheat
20# torrified wheat
10# each crystal 10/20/60/90
5# special B
5# black patent
Is anyone using any inventory software to track this so you can check quickly?
I use the inventory in promash, it's not the greatest but at least I can check easily if I have enough to brew a particular recipe.
The inventory function on Promash works very well if you are diligent. You always have to "finalize inventory" on every brew session and remember to add inventory when you get it. If you can do that, and have a good scale, it's very accurate.

This was my first year to have bulk.
but I think a did alright on my projections.
I like and have on hand.
then I get my Carmel or other malts from AHS.
I keep plenty of Notty and 05 and hops in my freezer...
