Certified Organic Barley Malt

All of the malts we sell are certified organic under the USDA National Organic Program by California Certified Organic Farmers. No pesticides, herbicides, or other harmful chemicals are used in the growing or malting processes. Organic malts are just like non organic malts- they can be substituted pound for pound in most recipes. All grain brewers take note- some brewers report a higher mash efficiency when using organic grains instead of non organic. Store all malts in a cool, dry environment, preferably in a sealed container, until use. For best results, do not refrigerate or freeze as this can cause condensation inside the package and create mustiness or mold.

Crushing Service: We charge 10¢ per pound to crush bulk grains, and $7 per bag to crush and repackage full (50- 55 lb.) sacks of malt. We sell our grains uncrushed (unless otherwise requested) to supply the freshest product possible. If crushing is requested we crush the grains just before shipping in a roller mill specifically designed to crush malted grains.

Minimum Order: 1 Lb. of each malt. 1/2 lb. Bags also available for an additional 20¢ per bag. If part of a mix of grains packaged in 1 bag, the minimum amount for each type of grain is .1 or 1/10 lb. The minimum quantity for a custom grain mix packaged in one bag is 2 lbs.

Packaging: We seal the crushed grain in oxygen barrier plastic to eliminate the chance of moisture absorption or mustiness during shipping. We package each grain type ordered in a separate bag which will fit up to 18 lbs. You can request special packing of your grain order during check-out. For instance, if all of the grains in your order will be used in a single brew, you can reduce the amount of plastic packaging by requesting they all be packed in one bag instead of separately. When we package grains in one package we will also give you our quantity discount for each grain in the package. Due to the limitations of our shopping cart software, grain orders with precise amounts should be placed by phone or you should give us clear written instructions during checkout about how you want the quantities adusted to suit your recipe

Quantity Discounts: 2 to 4.9 lbs: 10¢ off per lb. Over 5 lbs: 20¢ off per lb. Full Sacks of Grain: 2-3 sacks: 10% Off. 4 or more bags: 15% off (mix and match OK).
