Why does this malt and many others have "California Proposition 65" associated with it? Is it just the plastic packaging?
adam walcott on Jan 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Adam - Yes, that is due to the packaging.

Very nice malt.
Very nice subdued maltiness. Used it in My APA and Blueberry Ale. Seems to mill well and work well with pretty good conversion.
Would like to try GWM Caramel Steam Malt. Sounds interesting.

Great malt for bulk purchase
I purchased a 50-lb bag of Great Western Domestic 2-Row and I loved it! This malt does as advertised: provides a a soft malt character. I used it in IPA's and Stouts with great success.

The grains crushed nicely and uniformly with my KitchenAid grain mill attachment.

Great 2-Row
Great 2-row, arrived fresh from MoreBeer. I've had more luck with this brand than the two other big American ones. Very happy with quality of malt and efficiency I get from this grain.

Only 2-Row i'll use in American Style Beers
This is by far the best base malt for classic American style beers, and works well in other styles too. More flavor then briess or Rahr.

Fresh as ever
Ordered a 50lb sack. Fresher than my LHBS!! Great base malt with exceptional quality. Even my two dogs wanted to tear open the package when it arrived because they could tell the quality...lol

My new base malt for all my bathes.
