It depends on what you're brewing. I make a lot of APAs and American IPAs, so I buy US two-row in bulk. I don't use much maris otter any more, but I used to buy that in bulk. I bought a sack of Castle (Belgian) pilsner malt, since I was planning on making some tripels, and I use pilsner malt more often than some. I also bought Vienna malt in bulk, but won't do that again as I ended up not using it very fast.

I have been thinking about buying full sacks of Maris Otter, but waiting until I get a mill. What made you change, Yooper? Just curious.

I seem to brew a lot of IPAs and APAs but my last couple brews been Stouts. Seem U.S 2 Row is all way safe to buy seems to be in everything I was also thinking about Crystal 40. Pilsner malt is a good idea too. I was going to sit down one night and think about what i want to brew for the next couple of months so can see what i will be using the most. Never brought in bulk before but seem to be the way to go to save a couple a bucks

It's gonna be different for different brewers... What do you brew the most of? What does the recipes you've brewed use the most of? For most folks it' s 2-row..but it could be pilsner, or Marris Otter. We can't really tell you. You have to look at what you brew the most of.

I hope you REALLY like stouts if you buy a bag of roasted barley. I am pretty sure he was joking when he suggested buying one.

You should check on here, and at your local clubs to see if there's a group buy. We Michigan masher's do one on here every 6 months. The price ends up around 31 bucks/55 gallon sack.
