The First Sack!
 
1 Attachment(s)
I just couldn't stop myself from posting this...I've been brewing 3 years now, 25 batches, a year of all grain. Finally took the plunge and bought that first 55 lb sack of malt. Can't help but think of all the tasty bitters, ESB's, stouts and APA's that are resting in that bag.

I'm a pint-a-day drinker, so this will carry me for many months.

Many thanks to this forum for deepening my knowledge and easing my fears.

Ordered some grains with a couple pounds of MO myself. The flavor should be great!:ban:

Did you pick that up locally, or have it shipped? I'd like to find a good deal on a sack AND on shipping (No LHBS). It seems those two things do not go hand-in-hand.

The area I live in is too small for a full-on LHBS. About the best I can find is this website; www.fiftypoundsack.com

See if there is a local buy in your area. We have one here in Syracuse and order in bulk from the maltster. I can get 55 lb sacks of 2 row for like $30 shipped.

Ah too bad. We go all out. I think the last buy was like 6000 lbs of grain.
