Good Base Malt
I use this frequently as the base malt in my darker and more malt forward beers such as my American Red Ale and American Brown Ale. Always a good malty flavor with good efficiency in the mash. Would definitely recommend for recipes that need just a bit more malty goodness in the base than plain ol' 2-row.

Not for me
I used this malt for quite a few batches thinking that I liked Rahr so the pale ale malt, being less expensive than others, would be a good economical choice. Then I started having problems, first I thought it was the english caramel adjunct malt I used, then I thought it was the hops, then too high OG with low attenuation, etc. Then it dawned on me that the one common thread between all of these beers that I was disappointed with was this base malt. It has a certain sweet, malty, caramel flavor that I find off putting. I have used it from anywhere between 90% and 50% of the grist and it is still a noticeable flavor. It does subside with age and is somewhat tolerable in lower quantities, but I will not be purchasing this base malt again.

Is this the same as British Pearl Malt? I'm looking for an English 2-row pale malt for a U.K IPA I'm brewing soon. My local shop only has the British Pearl pale and that'll work, but I need something darker like Rahr pale malt. It just need to be killed in Engkand or in the US using the same methods. My goal is to use all British grains, hops and yeast. I typically use White Labs, so would you recommend WLP002 or 007? I'm thinking the London ale yeast would be best. I could re-pitch the yeast I'll collect from a 10 gallon ESB that's fermenting in my Ss Chronical now. I got a yeast harvester from morebeer.com and it's paid for itself. Y'all should carry Ss BrewTech gear. My 14 gal. Chronical was only $495! It looks and performs as good as any other. Same for their kettles. I like my MegaPot and put a sight gauge on it. But I'll sell it to pay for another one from Ss. I drilled the valve hole so I could use the Ss trub dam dip tube. Even with a hop spider, there's still gunk left behind.

BEST ANSWER: The rahr 2 row is quite similar though not identical. The processes would be slightly different though both are kilned at a higher temperature for deeper color. British pearl is a little drier. I would use 007 if you use rahr pale as that will dry the final beer down as well. Cheers!
