Northern alberta here! Raised in Courtenay, Vancouver island. We need more homebrew shops in canada! Funny how we live in one of the largest cereal producing nations and I have to order grains from the US!

As the OP I offcially sanction the reopening of this thread.

Hey wingnut, you could always do a road trip to Gambrinus in Vernon for base malts. 25kg bags were around 22-25 bucks a bag. Haven't checked since last summer though.

BTW, anyone near enough to me for a HBT swail down.. er.. homebrew meet up?

Victoria BC. Luckily we still have a HBS that carries malt and liquid yeast (a couple of the other stores stopped because of costs).

I lived in Halifax for quite a while, and while living in Fredericton, NB I had a Cape Bretoner as a roomie. I'm a Newfie myself, transplanted to Indiana a few years back.

I blame the lack of supplies on Ubrews. To many people are gtting lazy and just going to ubrews, plus most ubrews seemed to have stopped selling anything other than bulk malt and hops (though none seem to sell hops now due to the shortage).

That does seem to be the case. Though the main BOP I use as my LHBS (about 40 minutes drive) is an all-grain shop. Though they also have the huge drums of LME as well.

Another Canuck here from the St Catharines, Ontario. I am also in the same extract brewer's boat as other Canadians.

I recently tried to source all grain in bulk and was surprised at how expensive it was; $45 for a 25lb bag of 2 row malt from United Canadain Malt + shipping and taxxes if I recall correctly.

Just wondering if this is considered a reasonable price for people north of the border?

Cheers
BeerCanuck
