Homebrewcompany. 25kg Minch pale malt is the cheapest I’ve found.

I've just bought two 25kg sacks of Concerto malt for £21.50 each direct from Mungowells in East Lothian. Not much use unless you are in southern Scotland but you maybe find a maltings closer to home. Mungowells is great with the barley grown in the surrounding fields by Angus and Alison in charge of the malting. Great bread flour too.

It’s an industry wide problem iirc, something to do with bad crop yields on wheat in america this year? So barley had a higher sale value as farmers are subbing it for cattle feed. Or something.
Either way it goes up every year! Lol

Living in a farming community it seems odd that grain prices have dropped for the last four consecutive years but malt prices have risen. Noticably more in the UK. The average price of Pale Malt in Europe is 25€ for 25 kilos and in the UK £30 plus. Please note these are average prices from homebrew suppliers there are always exceptions.
The UK supplier that I use most has put up the price of their cheapest Pale Malt from £23 to nearly £30 in the same period.
During the same period hop prices have remained stable. They are a lot more expensive in mainland Europe. About 20% more.

In Ireland a local brewer in the south east said that the barley harvest has been poor and its jacked up prices all the way through the channel.

As for the Minch malt, I did notice the price difference when I moved back. Can’t wait to brew with it and put it through its paces

The hook head malt seems to add a few points of gravity to your recipes. I set a recipe in beersmith3 1041 but when I swapped out the pale malt for hook head pale malt it jumped to 1044.

I really liked that hook head malt but struggled with stuck mashes from the pre-milled stuff and I don't have a mill.

I checked with the homebrew company and they can't adjust the crush.

Anyone had much experience with rice hulls in a grainfather?

Get a malt mill I think whole grain stays fresher longer anyways. I'm just coming to the end of a 40 quid sack of weyers vienna malt. It was worth doing but next bag will be back to GP I've used Minch in the past and it was fine.
