Hands on Review: Viking Malt Xtra Pale Base Malt + Save w/Malt 6 Packs!

Viking Xtra Pale Malt in a Vittles Vault Container – Hands on Review

This review is by Homebrew Finds Contributor Brad Probert.  Brad is an engineer, expert homebrewer and experienced reviewer.  Grab a link to Brad’s website at the end of this review.

Viking Xtra Pale Malt

When we say “malt”, most of the time we are referring to “malted barley”. The barley is grown and harvested as a grain, and then the malt house does the fancy processing of coaxing that grain to get it ready to sprout, and then heating it to stop that sprouting process. Both of these things (the grain and the processing by the maltster) are what give us the different colors and flavors in our beers. The temperature and length of time the barley is heated is the biggest variable affecting the color of the wort you end up making from it.

Find the Best Deal on Sacks of Malt – Tips, Tricks & Sources – MULTIPLE Deals on Grain

homebrew sack malt deals

Updated: July 11, 2024

Grains by the lb can generally be had for a reasonable price. They also generally qualify for free and flat rate shipping when a retailer offers that. The same is true for sacks of grain.  The real issue comes when you add on shipping.  50 or 55 lbs of grain is… heavy.  Shipping charges can add up.


Multiple Limited Time Deals on Grain!

William’s Brewing Barke Munich Malt Sale!

  • For a limited time William’s Brewing has Barke Munich Malt marked down 20%
  • 10 lbs are on sale for $19.99 and qualify for flat rate or free shipping
  • 55 lb sacks are on sale for $63.99 + actual shipping charges

Weyermann Barke Munich Malt Deal!

38% off Grain at Label Peelers

Label Peelers is discounting their lineup of grain offerings, including malted barley, corn, oats, rye, wheat and more.  Malsters include Briess, Avangard, Dingemans, Muntons and more.  Offerings include base and specialty grains and apply to both bulk 50 and 55 lb bag purchases and smaller 1 and 10 lb offerings.

  • The 38% discount should be reflected on each product page
  • No coupon or discount code is required.
  • Shipping is an additional cost based on your location.  Because of minimum shipping costs, it may make sense to place a larger order.  Additional items may ship for minimal cost.  Example: Shipping (for me) for 1 lb of Citra is $8.93.  2 lbs cost $9.18 to ship.  That second pound costs just 25 cents to ship.  That’s minimum shipping at work.

Limited Time Deal on Grain Storage!

Vittles Vault Outback 35 lb Airtight Storage Container (Grain Storage)… $21.71! LESS than 25 lb size

Vittles Vault Outback 35 lb Airtight Pet Food Storage Container

Vittles Vault Outback 35 lb Airtight Pet Food Storage Container

More Info


Highlighted Features
  • Keeps Food Fresh and Flavorful: our Gamma Seal Technology, featuring a threaded locking system and double gaskets, create a controlled moisture balance making it the ideal airtight dog food storage container (suitable for cat food, too)
  • Say Goodbye to Pesky Pests: In addition to locking in freshness and flavor, Gamma Seal Technology keeps pests out, stopping ants and other insects out of this cat or dog food storage vault. Perfect for dry pet food

  • Must-Have Pet Owner's Cat and Dog Feeding & Watering Supplies: This versatile pet food storage container serves as a cat food storage container or food for goats, birds, etc. Note that only the 40lb and 60lb Vittles Vaults are stackable

The Vittles Vault line of containers are very popular for bulk grain storage.  They have a large opening for easy access and have an airtight design.

How much grain can this hold? The 35 lb size is listed as having an 8.5 gallon capacity.  My rule of thumb for unmilled grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  At that rate, this would hold about 42.5 lbs of grain.  That’s a rough estimate.  Actual storage capacity will vary.

What are Other’s Saying?   Search this product’s Amazon reviews for “malt” – affiliate link, note that multiple variations of this product may be available, as such a different version may appear at this link

As of this posting these are selling for just $21.71. Shipping is also free to many US addresses with Prime Membership [Try Prime for Free] or a qualifying orderPrices, promotions and availability can change quickly.  Check product page for current info – More About Prices

For some pricing clarity, this is actually LESS than the current price of the smaller 25 lb size ($28.95 as of this posting, can change quickly).

Malt 6 Packs at MoreBeer = BULK Malt Deal!

When you purchase 6+ 5lb bags of the same grain MoreBeer will apply a volume discount. You can see this discount on each product page. Here is an example:

Malt Deal at MoreBeer! – choose 6 more 5lb bags of grain to see volume discounts

Get Free Shipping: Shipping is free with a qualifying $59 order to many US addresses

Example… Briess 2 Row drops to $7.65 when you buy 6 or more 5 lbs packs. Buy 10 x 5 lb packs and you’ll have the equivalent of a 50 lb sack of grain. With the discount this will figure to $76.50 AND that will include shipping to many US addresses.

Yes, free shipping works… FREE Shipping DOES Work. I periodically get questions/concerns when I post this workaround, please read… Although bags of grain do not ship under MoreBeer’s free shipping program… this is a loophole of sorts. 5 and 10 lb bags do ship for free. If you use this technique you will receive 5 x 10 lb bags of grain, not a single 50 lb sack.


An Illustration of the Problem:

An unnamed online homebrew shop ran a grain sale. Discounting sacks of grain.

  • A bag of a certain brand of two row malt was marked down to $48.44… Great, that’s a good price!
  • To slowest/cheapest available shipping option was…. $71.22 to my address and… I’m in the same region as this shop.
  • That’s a total of $119.66. That’s not good, in fact it’s bad.

Another Illustration of the Problem (4/2024):

An unnamed online homebrew shop ran a grain sale. Discounting sacks of grain.

  • A bag of a certain brand of two row malt was marked down to $74.99 for a 55 lb bag. That’s an okay price is shipping is good.

  • That’s a total of $133.94. That’s not good, in fact it’s bad.

Another Illustration of the Problem (5/2024):

This is a current “sale” from a prominent online homebrew shop. 50 lbs of grain is $80. Shipping (to me, will vary based on location) is a whopping $88.62. That’s a total of $168.62!

Pale Ale Malt - Viking Malt

Viking 2-Row Pale Ale Malt via MoreBeer

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

Viking Pale Ale Malt is the perfect base malt for traditional Pale Ales, IPA’s, Ambers, Browns, Porters, Stouts, etc.. As a traditional english style pale ale malt it has a high degree of modification making it very easy to mash.

The rich maltiness adds layers of flavor to any ale.

Viking Malt is one of the largest malting companies in the world and the largest roaster of specialty malts. They are the main malt supplier to the famous Carlsberg brewery.

Viking Malt has 6 malthouses in areas where distinctive Nordic barley are sourced: in Halmstad, Sweden; Vordingborg, Denmark; Lahti, Finland; Panevezys, Lithuania and in Sierpc and Strzegom, Poland. The advantage of northern European malt is lower protein levels, good kernel size, and less amount of pesticides used due to the cold winters.

Extract fine % – dm min. 80.0
Color °L – 2.1-3.2
Protein % dm – max. 11.5

Hands on Review: Monster Mill MM-3 Grain Mill! + Supply Issues, Get Them While You Can

Updated: 5/14/2024

This review is by Homebrew Finds Contributor Brad Probert.  Brad is an engineer, expert homebrewer and experienced reviewer.  Grab a link to Brad’s website at the end of this review.

Monster Mill MM-3

I started milling my own grains not too long after I switched to all-grain. At first I thought the idea was laughable to mill my own grains- why buy something and do the work myself, when I could get it done for free at the homebrew shop? But once my process had stabilized a fair amount, I became frustrated by my inability to hit the recipe’s planned OG. On my batches where my gravity was lower than predicted, I found a notable number of fully intact grains in the spent grains from my mash. Aiming for consistency, I wanted to make sure all my grains were always crushed, so I bought a 2-roller grain mill. That worked well, but if I wanted to optimize mash efficiency, I was always dancing on the edge of a stuck mash.



The 3-roller mill from Monster Brewing Hardware passes through a first pair of rollers that have a fixed gap. That is machined to be 0.060”, with the intention of doing a minimal crush to soften the inside of the grain without really breaking the husk. After the first pair of rollers, it passes through the gap that you can adjust to your liking. The instructions provided with the mill recommend 0.045” for a medium crush, 0.055” for a coarse crush, and 0.038” for a fine crush. But of course the beauty of having your own mill is you can adjust it as you want, based on what works best for you.

The MM-3 3-roller mill comes with some options. The base rollers are 1144 steel alloy that is durable for long life, but can get some surface rust if used in a non-climate-controlled area, or if you wet mill your grain. For those homebrewers, they offer a stainless steel roller option, which they say has the same durability as the steel alloy base rollers. If you are a manic homebrewer, they offer a 3rd option with their MM-3 Pro series, which has heat treated rollers. These apparently have about 10x the life durability, but the price tag roughly doubles over the base MM-3.

The other option to choose from is the drive shaft size. Standard is a 1/2″ drive, but 3/8” is available as a smaller option. The 3/8” really isn’t recommended since 3/8” drive drills typically don’t have the torque to drive this mill. It can also be hard to find a cordless drill with enough torque to drive it, so Monster Mill recommends a corded drill. If you order the grain hopper from Monster Mill, it comes standard in galvanized 20-gauge steel, or optional stainless steel. Galvanized steel is corrosion resistant, so the only real advantage of stainless for your grain hopper is the “bling effect”.


Limited Time Availability Info:

In late April Monster Brewing Hardware announced an issue with one of their vendors. They are working to replace the vendor, but in the mean time what’s available is… what’s available.

Example… Briess 2 Row drops to $7.65 when you buy 6 or more 5 lbs packs. Buy 10 x 5 lb packs and you’ll have the equivalent of a 50 lb sack of grain. With the discount this will figure to $76.50 AND that will include shipping to many US addresses.

Yes, free shipping works… FREE Shipping DOES Work. I periodically get questions/concerns when I post this workaround, please read… Although bags of grain do not ship under MoreBeer’s free shipping program… this is a loophole of sorts. 5 and 10 lb bags do ship for free. If you use this technique you will receive 5 x 10 lb bags of grain, not a single 50 lb sack.

37% Off Grain at Label Peelers!

Label Peelers is discounting their lineup of grain offerings, including malted barley, corn, oats, rye, wheat and more.  Malsters include Briess, Avangard, Dingemans, Muntons and more.  Offerings include base and specialty grains and apply to both bulk 50 and 55 lb bag purchases and smaller 1 and 10 lb offerings.

  • The 37% discount should be reflected on each product page
  • No coupon or discount code is required.
  • Shipping is an additional cost based on your location.  Because of minimum shipping costs, it may make sense to place a larger order.  Additional items may ship for minimal cost.  Example: Shipping (for me) for 1 lb of Citra is $8.93.  2 lbs cost $9.18 to ship.  That second pound costs just 25 cents to ship.  That’s minimum shipping at work.

Sack Malt Deal! 50 lb Sacks of Briess 2 Row Malt

briess 2 row base malt

15% Off Ingredients at MoreBeer… Includes Sacks of Grain!

For a limited time MoreBeer is discounting all brewing ingredients by 15% when you use coupon code BIGBREW2024

To view selection of brewing ingredients, click here

= Bulk Grain Deal!

This coupon works with sacks of grain and makes a sack of Briess 2 Row just $41.64. Shipping on sacks of grain is calculated based on your location.

OR…. Depending on Shipping Costs…

When you purchase 6+ 5lb bags of the same grain MoreBeer will apply a volume discount. You can see this discount on each product page. Here is an example:

Malt Deal at MoreBeer! – choose 6 more 5lb bags of grain to see volume discounts

10 x 5 lb bags of Briess 2 Row is $76.50 with the 6+ bag discount. Use coupon ode BIGBREW2024 and they drop to… $65.03.  That includes shipping to many US addresses!

For comparison, the 50 lb bag is selling for $41.64 with the discount but sacks don’t quality for free shipping. Calculated shipping (for me, this will vary) is $38.80 or a total of $80.44 shipped. That’s well above $65.03. Note that with the 10 x 5 lb bag workaround you will receive 10 separate 5 lbs bags the equivalent of a 50 lb sack fo grain.
