that works for base grains. but specialty malts are rather hard to use up in full sack amounts.
For the record, the only time I ended up with unclaimed splits was when I ordered them on my own. For the last one I ordered a bunch of the specialty grains that we could never close. They're packed in vacuum bags now, so probably have a shelf life of 10 years .
If folks wanted too coordinate splits among themselves it would probably be way faster on the logistics/payment end, but it would be harder to get splits filled.
here's a link but it may need updated as i got some of them.Good to know. Do you have a list of non base malts you want to get rid of?
I was thinking 10-20# so something local/commercial. Last time I bought a 5 gallon from dutch gold in Lancaster and my sister-in-law dropped it off. However that is WAY too much honey for an aspiring meadmaker.How much honey do you need? You can get 1# jars of local stuff at McGinnis sisters. Sometimes they have some limited release stuff like blueberry blossom too.
I do have some Pearl malt on hold for you if you still want it.There is a farmer near me, about two miles away, and he sells honey that he collects from his own hives. It's a good price too. He doesn't feed the bees corn syrup in the fall either, so you know that it pure honey. He strains it himself. I've bought it from him in the past, both in a jar and still sealed in the comb. I bought about 8 lbs of beeswax from him about three years ago. Haven't used the wax yet. Let me know if you want me to pick some up for you. I don't really need any ghost peppers though.
Not sure what future plans are. I know TRUB did one over the summer and might be starting one up again. Country Wines is now going bulk discounts from their north location.
If you're in a pinch let me know. I can part with the base grains I have left as long as you're willing to take some specialty as well (don't want to try an all crystal recipe). I should have some domestic 2 row, 6 row, and some British base malt left.
