    How much are people paying for a 25kg sack of crushed Maris Otter at the moment?

    Geterbrewed sell it for about £27

    Although not that this answers your questions you could look at alternative pale malts too?

    I’ve tried Hook Head from Minchmalt and while it was fine, I like that I know what I’m getting with MO.

    £24.49 from Worcester Hop shop. Limited ranges, keen prices. Might even do you a 5% discount.

    Worcester Hop Shop wouldn't let me have the delivery made to my office address (possibly first order syndrome) so I ended up going with the Home Brew Store who also offer a small forum discount. Truth be known though by the time shipping has been added (a not unreasonable £7 or £8 from most of the shops I saw) there's not a massive difference.

    Thanks all for the feedback though.

    My local home brew shop does, well according to their website anyway, a 25kg sack for £30. Which compared to £5.95 for their next size down (3kg) is a good price seeing as £2 per kg or £1.20 if in 25kg bulk. To be honest local prices are likely cheaper than mail order prices due to weight and cost of posting I assume.

    If my test AG works in a couple of weeks then I'll seriously be looking as a 25kg sack myself

    I've been getting my sacks from brewsmarter. not the best company but they do cheap grain and don't charge much for postage to Highlands unlike everyone else. they had Viking pilsner type stuff for under 20 and pale for not much more and 7 quid for 50kg delivery which is crazy cheap compared to others. their stock is bad though in general.

    In looking I have found some offers on grain online which even with the postage can be comparable and in some cases cheaper than local. Though I must admit to just get a small batch locally for now as I need to do my first AG brew and get at least a second brewing bucket before seriously thinking of getting the grain by the 25kg sack. I mean, how many 40 pint brews will 25kg do, at least 5?.

    OK, there's a price for cheap. MO arrived today, manufactured March 2017 with a use by date of September this year. Next time I'll pay a little extra and check the batch date before ordering. You live and learn.
