I know. Enough already right? But you wouldn't believe how long and difficult this process has been. Until I physically had the grain in my house, bought, paid for and delivered, I wasn't sure I would ever actually get it. But I finally did, thanks to a lot of perseverance and tenacity.
Now what? I've got a few beer recipes lined up that I will use this hard earned grain in and I plan to start right away. I'm thinking of a double India pale ale to begin with based on a Pliney the Elder clone recipe I have. The type of beer that I could drink in satisfaction of a job well done. This would be followed shortly with a "must have at all times" Dry Stout.
Weyermann German pale malt: Yes!
Anyway, I'm not going to bore you any more with the tedious details behind getting brewing ingredients here. I just have to say that it feels GOOD to have large bags of malted barley lying around and the potential ales that they represent. Cheers to you, and may St. Gambrinus provide you with the grains you need in your efforts!
