I brought in a catelog from Beer Makers of America today. Basicly, malt
extract runs from $1.62/lb (Prague Pilsner, 6lb) to well over $3/lb.
Austrialian malt is 1.93/lb (6 lb).
I also visited a place in San Leandro called "Brewmaster" which I *highly*
reccomend. I didn't get the time to explore it properly, but it's about the
size of a small supermarket. You could start your own brewery from what they
have in there. They teach winemaking classes there too -- they have their own
kitchen. Bulk malt extract was about $1.50/lb for some British stuff, around
$2/lb for Australian dry malt. Malted grains were about $1.12/lb.
Lynn has sent away for a Williams' catelog (I have some second-hand stuff from
them, it looks like a class operation); we'll post more when it arrives.
So, the question still remains, where can I get malt *cheap*.
(P.s. we started some spiced ale yesterday, we'll see how it is by Christmas)
