Worth the cost

Mecca Grade Malts are long known as "fancy"--there is no easy way a commercial brewer could make a profit from such high prices--but on the homebrew scale, it's well worth it! Lamonta offered me in my IPAs a nice roundness to the body that I couldn't get with just pilsner malt--I highly encourage you to take a look at Lamonta is you want a good deal more sweetness and complexity.

Great base malt

I use mecca grade (either Pelton or lamonta) as the base for all of my beers and I absolutely love the flavor that it brings.

Makes a difference in taste, increases the quality of the brew, highly recommend going with Mecca grains when you can!

Mecca grade Lamonta

Solid pale ale malt. It’s like a less biscuity Maris otter with more diastatic power. Probably won’t buy again because of the price, but it’s worth it if you have the extra cash.
