Source of grains in Calgary ?

Post by me2 » Wed, 29 Nov 2006 03:46:51



I haven't brewed for about 8 years.  The last time I bought grains it was
from a company called Prairie Brewing.  I don't see them in the phone
book and I see their store has disappeared.

So where is a good place to buy grains in Calgary these days ?

Thanks.

Unfortunately, our options are becoming limited.  The only place in town
which I know of that still carries grain is the Vinyard, Center street
and 60th ave south (by Chinook mall, god I wish we'd get a chinnok...).
  I usually call them in the AM and pick up my order on the way home
from work.

Another option is Paddock wood, in Saskatoon.  They do mail order, and
have pretty much anything you want:

Shame that.  But you guys have a couple brewpubs
(besides Brewsters. Wildwood?  and Brew Brothers?
or some such.)  Maybe these guys would let you
piggy back stuff or accomodate you in some way.

And where the hell are Alan and Kelvin?  I haven't
heard from either in over a year.

I see they have a NW store.  I live in the NW.   Do they sell grains there
?  I hate to ask this, but what are the prices like ?

Thanks.

I'm pretty sure that they sell grain at the north store, but you could
always call and check (you need to phone in your order ahead of time
anyways, so they can measure/grind it).  Cost, if memory serves me (I
haven't bought grain from them in ~1yr) was pretty much the same as
before, with everything together (hops, grain and yeast) usually
rounding out at about thirty bucks.

Maybe that got wrapped up in that movement that has created the new country
of Quebec?
