Malt - Milled or Unmilled?

Question: Do you offer Milling as a service on all orders for Malt? If not, why not? Can I email you my recipe and you mill it for me?

Answer: All our Malt is sold UNMILLED to give you good value and keep it as Fresh and Friable as possible for you!  We serve 100s of customers every month and Milling is a cost to us and you if we offer a bespoke service to Mill custom recipes.  Our desire to give you good value and excellent service means we cannot offer bespoke Milling services.  We do sell Mills should you like to Mill your own at Home and Mill and Brew like a Pro!

If you do not have a Mill at home and would like to buy MILLED malt please head over to our BeerCo All-Grain Recipe Kits collection where you can select a MILLED or UNMILLED All Grain Recipe Kit option.  With over 40+ BeerCo All-Grain Recipe Kits with all the Malt + Hops + Yeast you need to Brew Happy and Brew like a Pro!
