Class act, that guy.

Now I just need this damn hop harvest to trickle to us homebrewing plebs, and I should be back in business!
You're much too kind! we all need to get together sometime and exchange home brews and tall tales with each other.

Honestly, just about any specialty malt -- right now I have none. My m.o. is to go shopping first then put together a recipe instead of the other way around. I enjoy the challenge of buying random stuff and trying to make something from it.

Just wanted to give a quick thanks to bmason1623 and Demon for putting this together. I'm sure I speak for others as well. Your efforts are really appreciated. Thanks!

ok, allthingsgiant picked up his grain about 5 minutes ago. ThatGuyRyan will be picking up a bag that somehow we missed on Saturday. And I still have a couple of small bags on the split orders for wernerherzog that I mis-weighed (is that even a word?) when doing the splits. This buy had 9 splits and the splits were not evenly split across the board (i.e. 2/3 bag for one person, 1/3 for another) so it got a little confusing but we took care of it. Also, bpolivka's sole bag of wheat was not included in the shipment. I wound up giving him my bag of wheat. I should be getting that replacement bag today via fedex. All in all, not too bad for our third buy. Thanks to Demon for helping coordinate/run this latest buy, and thanks to everyone else for making this happen. Happy brewing!

Allthingsgiant, me and demon almost gave up on you and sold your grain to someone else. Glad you came through at the last second. Happy brewing.

Thanks again for giving me your bag of wheat! Very kind of you. Glad to hear you got it worked out and that you got a replacement.
