do you use 2 row, 6 row munic or pilsin the most as your base malt? and what are you paying per lb, and from where?
I use 2 row canadian malted barley the most... http://www.northcountrymalt.com
great prices and shipping isnt to bad
MO is my fav.
I get great results and malty backbones needed for the hops used. Also get great bock beer from these nuggets too!
When in doubt, go MO.
I have used Am. Rahr 2row and I hated everything about it. Too thin, too blah.
I also have used other English malts and have been quite pleased with them. I use 6 row only when I need a boost of enzymes, but hear that it is a pleasing base malt too.
Prices vary b/t $65 - $75 shipped or picked up.
