After utilizing mostly all of the grains in stock, and ordering over a several week period, the grains and hops are in. Time to update the inventory. Decided to hold off for now on any other yeast purchase as I have some dry varieties in stock and reuse the yeast from former batches.
As I bake bread often, and have begun to make granola mix, cereal, cookies and bars I obtained some unmalted and flaked grains to use for those recipes along with spent grain and of course brewing different types of beers.

As a small batch brewer, 1 gallon, the availability of 1/2 lb minimum gives me more sampling and selection when crafting beers especially for the roasted, specialty and adjunct grains . As recommended by some home brewers, I tasted the grains and by munching on them the Golden Naked Oats and the Special B were the most flavorfull, hence the creation of Peabody Porter.
