Drove over to North Country Malt to pick up some bags and was surprised by the the price increases.
Canadian Malting Pale Ale Malt was $39.74 for a 55 lb bag and Baird Maris Otter was $56.44
That up ~$6 and and $10 over the prices last November.
I'm sure some of the increase is due to gas prices, but it seems like North Country prices have increased
markedly since they were bought out by Great Western. It wasn't so long ago that I could buy 4 bags of CMC
Pale Ale malt for $100. I wonder whether the breweries are seeing a similar increase, or whether it is mostly
small volume home brewers that are getting hit up.
