Why spend more?
I love this as a base malt. I've used it in all kinds/colors of ales and German lagers. I'm currently drinking a SMaSH lager using this and Willamette hops that is absolutely fantastic. Great malt flavor. In English ales, I just add a bit (4 oz usually) of biscuit malt to accentuate the malt. For German lagers, I blend with Munich malt. It's just such a great malt, it's so versatile, converts very well, and it's very inexpensive. I love it! BTW, never had issues with NB crush.

Briess is the best for the money
I've bought Briess for some time now and haven't had any complaints. I use it in all manner of recipes. It does well if you need to convert some adjuncts that aren't in the mood.

Nice grain malt
I had no troubles with conversion, it seemed like it worked well with adjuncts. I will use a decoction mash for a more traditional flavor profile. I've read where some say they detected no difference in flavor/body using the decoction and is not needed, however I have noticed a difference. For folks transitioning to all grain brewing I do recommend a 90 minuet boil to clean up any DMS, and a 90 minuet saccrification rest is also HIGHLY recommended if making a Lager. This also contributes to better flavor and body!

Make sure the grain is actually crushed
I buy grain online primarily because I can have it crushed and not have to borrow a friends grain mill all the time. I bought ten pounds of "crushed" 2 row. The bag said it was and so did the packing slip. It looked a little suspect when i put it in the mash tun, like is was only partially crushed or a small portion was crushed and the majority wasn't. I've never had issues with NB before so I went with it. Anyways it did not mash at all and ruined the entire mash and I had to throw out all the 2 row and all the specialty grain I had added too, huge waste of grain and money. Borrowing my friends mill and buying local is the only way i'm going to do it from now on. bummer

Response from Northern Brewer
Hi Jon,

I'm sorry that the grain you received did not perform well. I'd be happy to either replace it or send you a $50 gift card. -Mike S from NB

crush is good
I bought this pre-crushed and wanted to say that they did a great job. I used a friend's $700 high-end grain mill on some whole grain as a comparison and once we fine tuned that to what we felt was the perfect grind we compared it to the pre-ground grain from NB and felt their grind was identical. I dont' think you give up any quality (other than time sitting after grinding) to let them grind it for you.

is one pound $1.49?
A shopper on Dec 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: maybe when you asked your question, however the fed has printed lots of money since then so it now costs $1.79/lb
How long is the grain viable after being crushed before it's quality begins to deteriorate?
D A on Mar 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Base malt should be good for a few months, crushed, but then it can lose some enzymatic activity much past that. Specialty grains a bit longer, 2-3 months should not be a problem. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
