    Yep it's their all day everyday price (excluding GST)
    I'd say they would supply slightly cheaper for breweries buying in larger quantities.

    Also keep an eye out for the new Coopers Malted grain products. Hopefully on the market this/next year.

    Do they sell grain by weight or just by sack?

    All grain by the 25kg sack.
    Hops by 5kg bags (pellets) at the time they were phasing out 1kg hop sales and only doing 5kg lots.

    see hops price list from 2015. I haven't got their 2017 prices yet. I'll fire an email & post back....

    Edit: hop info

    Alright.
    Who needs some malt bags complete?

    Or want to be involved with splitting a few 25kg bags?
    I'm happy to pickup/store and then split with those upon pickup.

    Might allow us to get some different malts than usual.

    I'll go you a bisc-split 'babs - happy to go halvies if you want that much.

    Also keen for a split of abbey @peekaboo_jones if you were expressing interest rather than just providing an example.

    In a sack or two of base... Anyone used these malts before? How do they stack up against Gladfields (current fav), etc.
