Has anyone brewed with this malt and could you describe any comparisons/differences with it and other N. American or European pils malts? It is a Harrington cultivar that is grown in SE Idaho.

Although I haven't tried it yet, the spec sheets look impressive. I believe it's more highly modified than the majority of continental pilsner malts? In addition, the embroidered hat they sent me was nice!

You got a hat??? I order pallets of grain from them every few months and never get anything!

To get back to the topic, I tried a sack of IdaPils and used it in a couple of CAPs which turned out very nicely. It's a very nice Pilsner-style malt, but I couldn't see many of my customers purchasing it instead of the German or Belgian varieties we stock. It would make sense for a brewery, though, because the cost savings for large-volume purchases would be substantial.

Thanks guys. I'll just have to pick up a sack and give it a try.
