I was searching around for various products like rye, corn etc etc and what I see is that on line you can only buy certain amounts say 20 lb of rye. While I want to try the GW Whiskey I dont want to have the other 17 lbs just sitting around...and what if I dont like rye? That is a conundrum! Is there a way that we, as a community, can share ingredient's? I'm open for ideas on this. Mod's? Any input?

"BH has 5 pound increments when they are in stock... Amazon had a 1 to 5 lb size;

Or

now that said, I found a local homebrew beer shop that had Rye by the pound for 1.76 USD."

Yes I seen those but its flaked and I'm into whole grain which I see they also have. It used to be that there were alot of brew shops around now not so many and the one that is relativity close to me does not have grains just the typical hops,malt and barley pre packaged...but thats what I mean if someone did have access to cheap grains like you said above that would cut cost consideribly. Thanks for the links, I'll explore different avenues.

There's also an organic provider up in Nebraska, but them fools want 70 bucks for 38 pounds, shipped in a 5 gal LDPE bucket with an airtight lid, they offer flaked and whole.

My local shop was the same, whole or flaked, but I read here that it needed to be broken or flaked for max results, so I got mine flaked (they did it while I watched and got to savor the flavor) ....If BH had it in stock, I woulda bought from them, but oddly they seem to be outa some of the GW ingredients - Guess it's popular!

They called it flaked, but to me, it looked like a coarse grind as they ran mine thru...

BH has flaked here: http://www.brewhaus.com/...ed-Rye-5lbs-P876C99.aspx

now, that product pix looks like it's been rolled, like oats... Isn't the important part that the shell is cracked?

Don't confuse crushed with flaked. You want to crush whole grains (break the grain into a few pieces). Flaked grains are put through hot rollers to gelatinize them. They are used in two different ways.

aye - Just so I have it right in my mind - Flaked - one doesn't have to "cook" or steep, where cracked must be "cooked" or steep'ed to release the gelatin?

Correct. Flaked grains are ready to be tossed directly into your hot mash water- no boiling required.

Then tahe really seems to be alot eaiser to toss them in during cool down rather than "cook" them for 60 - 90 minuets. I guess I'm going to have to re think using the whole grains - Thanks Rick for that heads up :)
