Possible cheap source of grain...need help with terminology
I just got off the phone with a health food store close by. I was hoping to get my 2row from them. I called up and asked for 2row and she immediately thought I wanted malt extract...after I got that cleared up, she asked if I want unhulled barley, or hulled barley...
this is where it got confusing.
I don't know what I want...am I looking to get straight barley? Does it have to be 'malted' before I use it? I have a grain crusher, so I assume unhulled barley is uncrushed barley? I can get the grain for .85/lb and my LHBS is selling it for 1.25/lb, so it's a significant savings for me. I just need to make sure I don't end up with 50lb of deer feed.
if I give her my order before 4pm today she'll have it by 4pm on Wednesday!
I appreciate any help you all can give! Thank you!
