This is my favorite
Cost aside, this is my favorite North American pale 2-row malt. Good flavor and aroma and I also find I get better extraction with this malt too.

Best base malt
I use this for most of my grist for most brews. Consistent mash performance, good break, nice flavor. Responds well to temperature of mash for a specific recipe.

Best base malt
I use this exclusively for as the base malt for all American beers. It’s hands down the best. Just note that it does drop your pH a little more than other American base malts.

This is the best quality 2-row for my Homebrew.
55 lbs Rahr 2-Row. The best!
