    Buying Bulk from SAB Alrode


    Where can I get more information on how to purchase malt from Alrode?
    It's not the size of your equipment; it is what you brew with it.

    Thirsty days hath September,
    April, June and November;
    All the rest are thirsty too
    Except for him who hath homebrew.

    It's been a little while since I last bought but I contacted Alizia (Alizia.DuPreez@za.sabmiller.com) who works at the Alrode maltings. Just tell her how many bags you want and when you would like to collect (they have specific collection days and you have to wait a week) and ask for banking details and an invoice.

    Alrode malting are really difficult to get hold of (have been the for the years I have bought bulk). The last time I ended up contacting Tyrone, who I think is more involved in operations than admin, and he helped me out (tyrone.parmanand@za.sabmiller.com)

    If those don't help I also once ended up calling the Caledon maltings and they put me in touch with someone who could help. I contacted them via their number on the SAB website. I never once had a single call answered by the Alrode maltings.

    Do what Jakes does and save yourself a massive headache. I stopped buying from Alrode because it became such a pain.

    I pickup pale malt from Alrode on Friday.

    First you order from Cheryl Julies (Cheryl.Julies@za.ab-inbev.com). She then sends a invoice. Collection days on a Tuesday or Friday a week after payment.

    Go to gate 2, then on to weighbridge, fill in logbook the security brings. do not get out of vehicle. They send me to the loading zone. Got my bags and went to next weighbridge at exit for more paper work. Took 20 minute from start to finish.

    They ask me to bring hardhat and reflector vest next time, that was only issue they had.

    Health and safety. They are a factory, so you have to adhere to the safety rules.

    Ok Fair, but just about any factory that you visit must supply you with those items including ear plugs for noisy areas if it's a "Health and Safety" concern.

    Does the SAB malt still have stones in it? My grinder has a couple of teeth missing from that malt.
