I have a malt list attached.
I'm waiting for a new pricelist and an answer on availability of european malts, but haven't received it yet. If things change dramatically I will update you before ordering.
Some malts are special order items, but I don't know which because it keeps changing.
Let me know what you're looking for and I will look at availability, if possible give me a substitute.

Thanks, Maarten
