I'm a relative newbie, and I didn't know where else to post this. I'm not even sure it's an answerable question, but...
I plan on trying to stay with mostly AG brewing (got a basic mill for a Fathers Day present).
If I want to stock up on a few "basics" to save $ by buying in bulk, can someone suggest a list of such basics? I brew a lot of wheat beers for my SWIMBO. For myself, I plan on starting to do lots of darker, maltier flavored brews. English milds, bocks, some stouts, maybe some scotch ales. And I LOVE porters.
I haven't made ANY of the darker beers yet, and was hoping somebody with more knowledge than I can read my list and say "You need to stock up on grains X,Y, and Z. And malts A, B, and C.
