alot of breweries have had problems with it during mashing. Forming clumps in the mash tun and stuck mashes. Dont know how it performs on homebrewing scale

Of all the pale malts I have used Muntons is my least favorite. Crisps pale malt is cheaper from the maltmiller but you will pay postage.

I use Muntons Pale from Hamstead Brewing Centre here in Brum when I'm short. Never had any problems with mashing or efficiency. I think this is the Propino, a relatively new but popular spring variety. Hamstead supply to the trade and turnover a few tons a week, so it's not sitting around.

As above Crisps Pale is good, this is the Flagon winter variety (biscuit, light). I also use Optic from Hop & Grape which is an older spring variety (aromatic, biscuity, malty), Halcyon also from H&G, an older winter variety (less sweet than MO, biscuit) and Pearl, another older winter variety (bready, dry).

It's always good to taste the grain and to do so again when all mixed for mashing.

Here's to the man who drinks strong ale,
and goes to bed quite mellow.
Lives as he ought to live,
and dies a jolly good fellow.

Free delivery? Wonder how they're managing that, unless it's included in the price of the product.

If the photo is to be believed- BBE March16-IMHO thats been hanging around for a while. Easy Homebrew used to stock Muntons & it always had a good 6 months on the Best Before.

Yeah I guess its always a risk ordering on eBay. Anyway 60 quids worth of fresh malts on their way to me from MM. Should get me through most of the year. Can't wait to get stuck in.

I mashed in 150kg of it earlier and had no problems at all. I use it all the time.

Worcester Hop Shop has Crisp MO for £23.49 and comes out a hair more expensive than this with delivery or £22 for Crisp Pale. Cheapest I've seen so far and they even deliver up to the Highlands for that price.

I used Muntons for a good few years-mostly because it was convenient to get from a LHBS. I found that it was perfectly adequate,but now I tend to use Crisps.
