We sell malt!

The club sells malt. You get a great price and a small mark-up goes back to the club funds. In the end, this goes back to all who participate in events and prizes. We order when required, all members receive an SMS, if you’re not a member register for Beer Alerts. Grain can take from 2-4 weeks from notice given it’s ordered by the pallet.

This is the cheapest way to make craft beer. Malt is the primary ingredient and typically its the most costly (excluding hop heads).

A bag of malt will make around 100 litres of craft beer at 5% ABV. That’s about 20 cents a beer (+ other ingredients).

Members ~$84 (25kg bag).
