I’m not opposed to continue to buy maltodextrin from amazon but the 50# bags from brewing supply stores would make it ridiculously cheap…anybody do this? Is it the same stuff? Am I going to get poisoned from roundup or anything untoward?
This is what I currently have, well didn’t open it yet but bought last.
The price is terrible compared to the 50lbs I bought in 2014 for 61.48 shipped… I can’t find the same brand but its about 90 now with shipping/tax for 50lbs from a brewery supply store online. But great price for not having to invest in a several year supply.
Anything from a brewery supply store will be fine as noted above its all food safe and since its come up in the past… no one is spiking beer and cake supplies with stuff that will get you popped by wada.
My head just exploded trying to convert $/oz to €/kg but for whatever it is worth, I am using this Malto on Amazon.de which works out at 4.23€/kg, which is so cheap that I I didn’t bother looking any further. Fructose has become harder to get here and more expensive, not sure what happened.
Anyone here try just plain sucrose instead of the malto/fructose mix? I’ve been doing that - main problem is the overly sweet taste. I’m not really pushing the carbs/hour generally, so the non-optimal glucose/fructose ratio is no an issue for me. Cost is way less than malto/fructose.
I’m also using gatorade powder for flavor.
Yeah the 12 pound bag I linked above is probably easier to store (especially if you are only using it for refills and not as your primary source). It’s taller but much narrower and easier to ‘tuck away’.
