Grain - Pale Malt Advice

Need to get an order in for 25kg of pale malt amongst other things.

Where I get my ingredients from (bearing in mind this is Italy) sell the following:

Muntons
Bairds
Weyermann

Just about to finish off a 25kg sack of Muntons, and think my efficiency has been affected, (or it could be the brewer :whistle: ), so wondering whether I should swap?

I 'm tempted by the Weyermann. :scratch: Only really because it is slightly cheaper and German engineering and all that.

What would you choose?

Yeah weyermann stuff usually comes up more expensive I find rather than cheaper, although I'm 95% a crisp user

As above, Weyermann is your most local source. I've never had any problems with Muntons. I've only had one lot of Bairds and didn't like it.

Thanks guys, I'll give it a go. :thumb:

The Weyermann costs €27.50 (about £21) for a 25kg sack, the Muntons €33.00 (about £25.40). Sadly I have to pay for it to be crushed, which is about £5 more, but I can live with that.
