Thanks? for the reply, however this tells no facts we can use and leaves much to be desired and maybe it is best to refrain from replying in threads like this unless you are providing or planning on providing beneficial instead of anecdotal information especially as a NB employee ( I guessed exactly what you posted, thus the reason I asked for true knowledge on the subject guy.)
Now that you involved yourself and being you work for NB could you provide a sound answer such as reaching out to your purchasing representative for facts they would know such as we use/used 80% Schill last year and mostly Global this year etc…)and/or reach out to your distributors for analysis info as you have lot#'s on your sacks, purchase orders, Wholesaler invoice-date comparison of initial maltster shipment that would spell this stuff out that none of use are privy to. “the distributor is usually the best place to get those.” They dont exactly talk to the common man especially with no lot#'s in hand or don’t do actual business with them directly such as NB does. If not able to pony up now just tell me “NO” or dont respond and I will thoroughly understand your MO and will gladly contact someone at NB that actually cares about brewing and the customers needs.
FYI: Many brewers other than myself would appreciate the name of the producer being used/sold to them and at least “general analysis #'s” fine grind and moisture listed with each base grain being shipped to consumers at the time, how hard is it to update a site to say (Weyermann FG:83 H2O%:4) or when switched if NB feels a need>>>( Best FG:81.8 H2O%:4.1)Many other retailers are not afraid seek out and provide this information why the constant smoke and mirrors act? Here is example of your direct competitor:

And also with such solid pils and Munich malts from Best#1 or Wyermann#2 IMHO ( I typically use Best Munich and they do provide #'s such as shown above I had from past bags.) Why in all that is good would NB see a need to fluctuate supply and use Schill or Global such as you post???
“general analysis #'s”:
( Per producer as there is a definite shift from malter to malter and to assume otherwise such as NB is doing then is to dismiss the needs of the consumer on a whole and spells out a lack of respect for the customer, Am I to assume that 4 different malters are so very close to be same/similar? I think not and this leaves us to the old saying of buyer beware and or guess from day to day is the sediment I take away from your post. Again the reason you do more harm than good by providing less than customer friendly posts…and now opened up a can of worms I and others were not even aware of before…just food for thought to complete the above request if you choose abandonment of the thread now. )
