I heard theres a new German maltster distributing in the US now, they are called Avangard. They’ve been in business since 2006 and claim to be the largest maltster in Germany, with four locations. apparently they are just coming into the US because nobody I know had heard of them before this month. They are pricing competitively here at first, so if they are producing quality malt then it is something to consider alongside with Weyermann, Best, and Durst. The only down side I saw is they are owned by a bank, and I have an aversion to an outfit that makes their decisions solely based on money. Not saying this is the case here, we’ll find out soon enough if the quality is there.
So, anyone used some of this malt? I see they have a pils, a light Munich and some crystals. I’ll probably get sacks of the two base malts here in the next couple of weeks.
