Rahr Products Moving to 55# Sacks


Beginning in 2017, Rahr Malting Co. products will be packaged in 55 lb (25 kg) sacks.
The following BSG warehouses will begin shipping Rahr products in 55 lb sacks on February 27, 2017:
  • Providence, RI
  • Denver, CO
  • Vancouver, WA
  • San Leandro, CA
  • Houston, TX
55 lb sacks are expected to begin shipping from the Atlanta warehouse in mid to late March 2017; and from Shakopee in late spring 2017.

Please watch this page for updates.

There will be a short transition period with both 50 lb and 55 lb sacks in stock, until existing inventory of the 50 lb pack size is depleted. We will be making every effort to minimize overlap.

The following Rahr malts and grains will be available in 55 lb sacks going forward:
  • Standard 2-Row
  • Standard 6-Row

Weight and height changes for pallet quantities:
Pallet quantities of Rahr malts will be approximately 6-8” taller, and weigh 2200 lbs instead of 2000 lbs.
