Default Malt in Canada

Hello all! I just joined tonight, and happy to find this forum! I am a long time grain-brewer in Ontario, Canada and wonder if anybody's got a source for malted barley. I used to get huge 40 kg bags of 2-row, Munich malt and Crystal malt from a microbrewery here who would get it from Canada malting co.. Unfortunately, the poor brewery has gone under and now I am looking for a source. This is my first time back at it for 5-10 years so I hope all the gear still works!

Thanks!
Steve

Where in Ontario? There's an active brew club in Ottawa that could help you out.

I'm with a Montreal based club and we do 2-3 bulk purchases a year from Canada Malting and/or Gilbertson and Page.

Default North Country Malt

I've used a company based in Upstate New York (at least close to Canada) that has great prices.

They called North Country Malt and can be found at: northcountrymalt.com

North country malt is great but shipping is going to kill him. Don't foget canadian malt is going to have doulbe taxes and duty going to Canada.

Besides Canadian malt is cheaper in canada than it would cost anywhere in the US. I remember buying a 25Kg bag for 27$ CDN a few years ago.

Now in texas, that same bag cost 45$ USD localy. Huge difference.

My recomendation would be to use http://local.google.com and in the search field type "homebrew supply near <your city>" or beer supply or something. Chances are you'll find something local.

Good luck

George

I believe you can order malt straight from Gambrinus malting in BC, but shipping will probably be high. Its $25Can for 25 kilos.

Gambrinus Malting Corp
(250) 546-8911
1101 Industrial Drive RR 6
Armstrong, BC V0E 1B6, Canada

Default Canada malt

It may be expensive to have Canadian malt shipped back to Canada from America, but for anyone else who is interested North Country Malt sells 2-row Canada Maltings for $24 a 55-pound sack - that's pretty darn cheap. I don't own the company or anything, I'm just a satisfied customer.

Ouch- that ain't cheap! We buy that same grain at around $19. CDN through our club. That's around $16 US I think.

We order and pick it up directly from Canada Malting here in Montreal, no middle man. That's why I was asking the original poster if he was near us or Ottawa.

I'm lucky enough to live an hour away from Gambrinus. But It would be nice to have a cheap source of pils malt etc.
