FP still selling discounted sacks on the regular?technobabble66 said:I'm starting to run low on TFFMMO & Wey Munich 2 (& Yob is too lazy to organize a BB at the mo') so I was eyeing off the Viking Pale Ale as an option (... & their Munich) (... & their Red Ale) [emoji57].
Certainly are, and i'd be very happy to grab another TFFMMO off FullPint in the (near) future.Spiesy said:FP still selling discounted sacks on the regular?

Just ordered some sacks.... Keep you postedtechnobabble66 said:I'm not too stressed about it, but I'd certainly note it as a *possible* issue. I use a lot of Weyermann and have been v happy with it, hence I'm not really bothered by the distance at this point.
I'm more concerned with the basic quality of the grain.
I guess given the price I'd wonder if they're cutting quality somewhere compared to, say Weyermann - eg: maybe Wey pay more for better transport or better grain, etc?
Conversely, just because something is more or less expensive doesn't always translate into better or poorer quality. They might just be more competitive.
Hence this thread and the questions really. Theories aside, I was hoping to hear of someone/anyone in the English speaking world who has tried Viking at a homebrew level and what their results are. Hear of some Empirical evidence, n' shit... [emoji5]️
I have a Viking red IPA a yankie Pale in bottle & both hit the og's with good colour. As for freshness, these were all malted mid to late August . I have given a couple of sample recipes to some mashers boys & I have yet to hear back on them .technobabble66 said:It's all a bit of a distant haze ... The president's booming laugh ringing in my ears and some dreadlocked guy thrusting glasses of draught beer at me... Like some scene out of a David Lynch film.
Tbh, I just keep missing the Tuesday meetings due to work and stupidity. But I need to contact the treasurer ASAP and sign back on board with my hard earned. Then go hunting the Viking malt. [emoji41]

The price is certainly appealing, but I'd rather spend extra to get good quality if needed. However, if Viking is both good and cheap then it's Charlie Sheen time ... WINNING!
