Default Inventory list of Ingredients for your Brewery

So I have noticed many brewers keep most of their ingredents on hand. They will by in bulk and divide it into more managable packaging. I was curious what are your must haves and for what beers.

Grains
Hops
adjunctions
yeasts
equipment

The inventory overlaps some, but it covers pretty much everything I have on hand

Dedicated brewing ingredient fridge (hops and yeast), and a 100sq foot temp/humidity controlled grain storage area. There is about 300 pounds of grain and 10 pounds of hops in my inventory currently.

Buying in bulk can drive down the price of a 5 gallon batch to 10-15 bucks easy, even for IPAs.

I totally agree. I am running between $8 and $15 a batch depending on the grain and hop bills.

I buy base grain once a year for 48 cents a pound (2row, vienna, munich, maris otter), specialty grains twice a year from brewmasterswarehouse (check out on hbt!), hops once or twice a year from hops direct, 5 or 6 pounds at a time. I also slant my yeast, so purchasing a vial for 8 dollars lasts me a lifetime, I may buy a new culture of a particular strain every 3 or 4 years, but thats it.

and various other things- an ounce of newport hops, glacer hops, some honey, etc. There are a bunch of leftover hops that I vacuum sealed and froze, so I have many odds and ends.

I accumulated this over a period of time, but I did just buy five pounds of hops this week and have my homegrown also. Usually, I buy things in bulk and just buy more when I run low.
