which pils malt?
So I have decided that I want to use Pilsner malt in one of my upcoming O-Fest in addition to plenty of Vienna and Munich. The issue is my main supplier does not carry Weyerman's Pilsner, a malt Ive used, know, and like. So I need to choose between two maltsters that I have never used thier version of Pilsner.
Thomas Faucet, whose crystal I have had and like alot but their Pils malt is called Lager malt which from what I understand is good but not great. Its also not German.
The other being Best-Malz who I have never had any of thier grains, nor do I think I have had any other local brew made with it. It is however German in origin.
The final decision might be price, but to be honest I will spend the extra to get quality grain for this beer. O-fest is not something to be skimped upon.
So any comments, votes, ideas, etc. is greatly appreciated. The last option is to find another supplier, but I have a feeling the corp might cast a glance my way as the new guy starts running wild with C.O.D. accounts. Thanks again. Cheers!
