I am indeed talking about Riverbend. I have used heritage in a pale ale and it was pretty amazing. I am not sure I would take it over 40% of the grain bill again, but different strokes for different folks. It makes an insanely malty beer. I would be interested in using it to make an American-Belgian to see how it would turn out.

Cool. I used about 10% in a rye-p-a, but haven't tried it yet.
Does it really have the "nutty" taste that they claim on the website?

I have to agree with Aubiecat to drive 5 hours round trip to pick up a couple of sacks of grain is insane, just is not worth my time. I would also pay the extra to have it delievered. Yes, and from Laredo to anywhere in nothing but miles and miles of ranches unitl one gets to San Antonio or Corpus Christi. I am 3.0 hours round trip to the LHBS and if I just need a 3 or 4 items I buy over the internet. If the gas cost exceeds the delivery cost I just have it shipped, which is usually most of the time! I buy most of my grains from Austin Homebrew Supply.

It tastes like Maris Otter x 5
