Malt order coming up! Deadline Monday October 31st.

Next Malt order is coming up. I’m not sure yet when this order will go out, but please have your order in before the deadline.
The sales of all-grain recipes have gone down significantly in the past year, so I will need a fair bit of bag orders to make this order happen. Let's all try to make this happen.
Orders will be taken on a first come first serve basis.
Please mail your order to

Malt order deadline Monday October 31st.

Prompt pick up of ordered bags is necessary.

I have attached a new price list. And yes prices have gone up another notch. :(

If you can't find in the list what you're looking for, shoot me an email and I will look at availability and pricing. 

Thanks, Maarten
