I made cream of three crops with some of my corn stash. Overall think it is a decent beer for what it is shooting for (a chugging beer). It cost about $12-13 on the high end to brew 11G of it.
I have only a couple of # left. If the group buy powers (e.g. you) were willing to split it, I would also take a .5 share instead of a full sack.

Ha - I guess I at least get a pinch of power on HBT haha

yeah I recall the splits were small, I will have to see what I have in the stores. Truthfully I am not sure what brews I will use it for going forward. I liked the altbier I brewed so much I am not sure if I would rebrew the cream of the crops, rather chase that style a bit more.

Have any good cream ale or similar recipes using corn?

I wanted to do a PBR clone, but I think that is mostly rice.

You have to get your inventory into BeerSmith. Its great for tracking so much inventory. And plus when the next update comes out, you will be able to check your inventory from anywhere with the cloud access.

1. What is the shelf life of unmilled grain if stored properly?

2. How do you store unmilled grain properly?

I'm using grains purchased from last July/August with no issue. However, I'm a bit whacked when it comes to storing grains. For stuff I am using regularly, I store in food grade plastic or regular plastic within a mylar bag. I invested in some buckets with gamma seal lids which I use, the gamma seal lids are great as they spin on and off for easy access. For specialty grains, I break up the split into 1# or whatever increments and vacuum seal them.

For hops, I vacuum seal them and keep them in the freezer.

I added another # of cascade and EKG for some local brewers who I'm trying to get into group buy mode.

Jeff, can you add space for another hop split, HU-90CTP Centennial?

My friends also want 4 sacks of 2-row, I can't fit another 4 sacks in my car but I added 3 more for now.

COUNT = 80.

Hey everyone. Can we hold off on adding any more bags for now. Twogunz has been out of the country and I want to make sure he has a chance to add something if he needs to. He hasn't been able to check the sheet so he has missed the furry of additions. Hate for him to not get anything, esp since he is taking the shipment for us.

if you have more grain interest, keep track and when jeff sorts this out we will see if we have enough interest to go for pallet three.

I would go in on another centennial if pushed!
