Has anyone dealt with Bintani for a BB or smaller quantities (single sacks of grain) before?
I have a friend who is a pro brewer, he gets me stuff from Bintani through his work. Bintani is very firm on not selling to homebrewers (too much work for no profit), Bintani prices vary between brands about $40 per 25kg of Bestmalz but Simpson is more costly and Joe White cheaper.

Once a year I purchase $280 worth of Bestmalz (7 bags worth of base malts two bags of Pilsner, a bag of Wheat, Vienna, Munich, Rauch & Red X) which takes care of almost all my brewing needs since I brew mostly German & Belgium beers.

I think that http://www.ellersliehop.com.au/malt.html prices are extremely good for homebrewers.

I hate buying malt retail, afterwards, I feel so used since I pay $1.6 a kg wholesale but well over $5.5 a kg retail, feel so dirty.

Picked up sacks of castle malts from Ellersliehop, bloody great pricing, varied between $1.20-1.50 a kg. Have castle 6row pils on order for the bronzed brews. Plus they do aus cluster if you are chasing it.
