I've not been able to find many sources for malted buckwheat, and the couple I have found want over $4/lb for the stuff -- is that right?!

Do any of y'all have a reliable, reasonable source?

Thanks!

Gluten free brewing grains are expensive. Being a GF grain, the only places that are likely to malt buckwheat for brewing are the places servicing the GF brewing community.

Well, corn & rice are priced as-expected. I haven't looked at millet.

Heh. Buckwheat as just-seed is ~$1/lb (in quantity), but then you have to malt it, yourself.

Just hard to imagine that there aren't economics of scale doing huge trucks of the stuff all at once.

Whatever -- I'll keep looking. Maybe I'll buy a pound and learn about malting-at-home. ;)
