GW Pale is becoming my utility base malt for Pale Ales and west coast IPA.
5 lbs packs are an easy way to order grain to stock up for a few last minute brews

Love this Base Malt
A 2-row base with extra character. When I'm not using Maris Otter, I use this. Good extract, great, almost toasty, taste. Love this malt.

Tremendous flavor
This malt is killer! Very similar to a british pale malt, but so much less expensive! I use it in place of Golden Promise in a Scottish light ale, and it's great!

Nice Malt
I would give it 5 stars but there is a lot of chaff and small rocks (2 so far) in it. Otherwise it makes good beer.
