Very pleased
Pleased with it's contribution of aroma and flavor. The total grain bill was 10 pounds for a 5 gallon batch, this Pilsner malt made up 20%.

Good stuff
Tastes great, once I did not step mash and it turned out fine, seemingly alluring to being well modified

How many pounds is one order of this malt?
A shopper on Apr 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Grain is sold by the pound, or by the full sack. ( 50 or 55 lbs ) If ordering by-the-pound, you can have it milled or un-milled; if buying full sacks it will be un-milled.
I'm very new and I've only ever used liquid malt extract. I was wondering how I use this grain extract?
D M on Feb 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is actual grain, so you will need to do some form of mash, depending on your equipment available. Grains need to be crushed first and then "soaked" for an hour at least with temps of 145-155, accounting for ten degree loss upon adding water. Some like to mash at three different temps like 125 for 30, 135 for 20, and finish at 155 for 30. I have had great success doing single temp/step mashing with this grain, thanks to how well modified grains are manufactured nowadays. Most important with grain is not to exceed 169 degrees or so, which is the beginning of the danger zone for extracting tannins instead of good grain flavor.
I would greatly appreciate some information regarding the lot analysis posted for this malt. Is the %moisture reported correct? 8.5% seems very high. Also, is the extract %DBFG or %DBCG? Thank you for any information you can give me.
A shopper on Nov 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Moisture is 4.5%, DBFG is 81% and BDCG is 79%
