Place was north country malt. However - they recently changed their policy about selling to homebrewers because they just acquired brewers best, or some company similar in name. Anyway, they told me if I had bought from them before I would have been able to still buy, but they are not taking on any new homebrew customers, only commercial ones. See this post, I was trying to see if I could get somebody to pal up for a group buy.

Perhaps someone on these forums who shopped from them in the past and would be willing to help us out?

Lots of lookers but no replies. This extract cost is killing me!

I'm pretty sure hopville is wrong on this: I noticed the other day when I built a recipe with Briess, but the LHBS only had Munton's. So I bought it, and everything changed in hopville. I noticed that it lists the PPG for Munton's at something like 35. I asked a few people, read around, and any kind of DME should provide around 45 PPG. Changing the default PPG value fixed the gravity values for the recipe.

Tasting Briess vs Muntons (I have both on hand), Briess is def more sugary. Muntons is dryer and more biscuity.
