Doctor M: No idea. Three factors, all out of my control, determine when the grain arrives: 1) demand. people on this forum ordering the 40 sacks required for me to send in an order; 2) the buyer: once I get the order in to him, he has to get it to the wholesaler and this can takes days or even a week; 3) the wholesaler: he needs to receive and process the order, put the pallet together, arrange the shipment. This can take a week to even three weeks. On #1, demand seems high as we are at 20 sacks already in about 2 weeks. So this one may happen quicker as the summer is winding down and people are starting to stay home (and brew!) more. Or it could stall for a month...no idea. My advice is to get in on a buy and not worry about it again until your grain arrives. I periodically order on the buy myself and try to keep 3 months or more supply on hand in case a buy takes longer. I will PM you the list...

Pale is kilned a little higher and as a result is a bit darker and has a bit more character.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I've heard that pale malt is supposed to mimic the flavor of Maris Otter.

I use both 2 row and pale and cannot detect a difference in them in the final product. Pale is a bit darker, but it is not more than another 1-2 lovibond. Some say they taste a bit more cracker or bread flavor, but my pallet is not sensitive enough to the flavor difference to tell a difference. YMMV...but I would buy the cheaper 2 row unless you just want to try pale for a change of pace.
