Great malt for bulk purchase
I purchased a 50-lb bag of Great Western Domestic 2-Row and I loved it! This malt does as advertised: provides a a soft malt character. I used it in IPA's and Stouts with great success.

The grains crushed nicely and uniformly with my KitchenAid grain mill attachment.

Great 2-Row
Great 2-row, arrived fresh from MoreBeer. I've had more luck with this brand than the two other big American ones. Very happy with quality of malt and efficiency I get from this grain.

Only 2-Row i'll use in American Style Beers
This is by far the best base malt for classic American style beers, and works well in other styles too. More flavor then briess or Rahr.

Fresh as ever
Ordered a 50lb sack. Fresher than my LHBS!! Great base malt with exceptional quality. Even my two dogs wanted to tear open the package when it arrived because they could tell the quality...lol

My new base malt for all my bathes.
