According to my brewing supplier (Nancy Callahan at Jasper's Home Brew Supply,
Litchfield, NH), Blue Ribbon Malt is now known as Premier Malt. She says that
it is sold mostly to old men these days. She doesn't seem to care for its
flavor. She gets $6.60/2.2 lb can for it, but I've seen it in large
supermarkets for as low as $4.55. It is usually located among the molasses
and baking supplies.
