Not sure it will get you off Golden Promise, but I've no regrets for buying Minch Malt.

I've had no issues with it. Crushing my own with BIAB I hit the numbers ok.

I've used the pale and lager so not much malt character expected.

Out of interest, what do you brew, I almost ordered 25kg of GP in the HBC sale but changed to 10kg of the minch for now as it said it creates a sweeter beer.
