I would pick up what is needed on your first batch, once you try it as written, start subbing to suit your tastes and normal stocking of grains.

I love my vacuum packer, I use it for my bulk hops, and all but my base grains. I pick up most in 5 pound increments, vacuum pack them with extra bag for resealing and store in my brew closet in a couple storage bins, my base grain goes in vittle vaults that I picked up from costco, 24 dollars each and they hold a full sack of base malt.

The costco by my house got in a fresh shipment, it took some 'splainin to the wife why I bought 6 of them....

I brewed this up again on Tuesday eve, I used Gambrinus 2-row, some home toasted victory as described in the recipe. this batch puts my total at over 70 gallons. This current 10 gallon batch is going to be served at a friends pool party, and was requested by many repeat attendees.

When you get your batch finished, pour up a pint and post a pic so I can admire yet another pint o' mild!

Brewing tomorrow morning. Have you ever put this beer into a secondary for any reason? I May not have a free keg after 10 days. This will be my 1st brew in my grain mill ! I am thinking about a hand full of rice hulls just in case.

You could just let it sit on the yeast cake til you have an open keg, then you are only transferring once so risk of oxidation is reduced.
