    Thought i'd throw the idea up of trading grain, in the recent light of people buying a heap from the Coffs brewery which recently closed, and skelly22 wanting more stock, and myself have a heap of one malt and non the other.

    Maybe list what you have or what you'd like and we can maybe swap if there is any interest next weekend.
    If not, no biggie, thought i'd just throw the idea out there.



    I have a full 25kg sack of Wey Pilsner Malt(Un-Opened) in excess to my needs (2yr old, always stored in air-tight container)

    Have half or there-about sacks of Munich, Wheat, Vienna and Pilsner that im comfortable in keeping.

    Would like MO and some more spec malts.

    Good idea! Ive got about 10-15kg of JW Wheat malt and 20kg of Best Malz dark caramalt excess to my needs. That and about 15 kg of hops :p

    Would swap for most base malts or other spec malts.

    Need anything I got?

    What u need Stu?

    You can use my shed and gear to brew in also if you want, invite goes for any you lads.
    I go halves in ingredients with a bloke from work and we brew together and share the end product, only do partials with him, but its good brewing with others, I find it gets you off your arse and makes it more fun then more of a chore it sometimes feels like.
    Get more brews of different beers also, instead of more bottles of a same brew.

    Ok, weighed and also priced it up against the same/equivalent malts from MHB, roughly $533 if I'd bought through him :D
    These are the ones I'm down to split some of
    12.5kg Roast Barley (Just said Barley on the the clear bag I'm guessing this is what it is) *edited*
    19.5kg Black Malt
    10.6kg Cara Malt
    26kg Light Chocolate
    24.6kg Light Crystal
    6.6kg Dark Chocolate

    I'm wanting to keep a bit of each, so I'll just gauge interest and then decide what I'll keep (will make a list of what I'm brewing in the near future to help)

    Hi Arghonaut, I would take say 8kg or so of that wheat malt off you if you like. Can either do for cash or I will amend my grain order to leave out the wheat and add in a bag of Munich (if country brewer do a good brand )and swap weight for weight if you like?

    Ive used it before in APA's too, and even an aussie ale, its fairly light, roughly equivalent to pale crystal or caramunich 1 in terms of EBC.

    Awesome, I think I might just keep about 5kg of each one (except the light crystal, I use a lot of it) and then bag all the rest up into vacuum bags and bring them out

    Hey Spork, I'd be keen to buy or swap 2kg of the caramalt and light crystal, and 1 kg of the roasted barley and light chocolate malt ( if you have enough left over)

    I was going to bag up a shiteload of malt last night but ended up going out all night...
    I've done up 3 x 1kg bags each of light crystal, light choc, roast barley and caramalt (also have a 2kg bag of roast barley) in a rush this morning
    I'll bring them out and the Grafton guys can have priority over them, the local guys if you want some give me a yell and I'll throw you my address and you can swing by with a container and grab what you want
