Default Base malt

I got all excited about Geterbrewed's Irish Ale Malt. I'd read some good reviews of it and at just £19 a sack it looked an absolute bargain.
It's shown on their website as currently out of stock so rather than jump in and pay £30 for my usual Maris Otter, I thought I'd give them a call and find out when it was likely to be back in stock. The bad news is that it isn't. Apparently they are now working much more closely with Crisp and as a consequence the cheap ale and lager malts are no longer available. They do have some Irish Stout Malt available at the bargain price but I'd struggle to get through 25 kilos of that.
So, given that I'm now looking at between £27 and £33 per sack plus shipping, do any other forum users have recommendations on where to get malt bargains?
I tend to brew pale ales and bitters.

Their extra pale ale malt is £22.61 for 25 kg http://www.geterbrewed.com/crisp-cle...t-ebc-3.0-4.5/. Really sad to hear that, that malt was a bargain.

That's a bummer
I went to order some pale and lager malt the other week but out of stock.Got some stout malt instead.Have used it in a brew,mixed with the pale so will see how it fares.By all accounts it's not JUST for stout.

Had to Google that one, never heard it called Stout Malt before. Lightly kilned propino. I think I'm using something similar although Muntons call it Extra Pale Propino. I like it so far, expecially when using speciality gains and adjuncts, as you can go quite daring knowing that there is enough diastatic power to convert. Also as it's low colour it stops things going too brown when adding crystal and/or Munich.

Such a shame because that malt really boosted effiency. Plus the price was amazing. My custome will go back to homebrew company.

Sort it out @Get_er_brew
