Great conversion. I am not sure why, but I had significantly less crud in my kettle after the boil. It seems that all the small field barley just works better. Worth the price.
Tasty malt in my opinion. I used it to make a German Albier base malt was 50% Lamonta Pale Malt with 50% Melotius Munich Malt. Turned out great, Love Mecca malt!
This has become my go to Pale Malt. It seems like a a combination of Maris Otter and Golden Promise
Added a malt complexity to my IPA and pale ales that I really enjoy. Worth every penny I think.
I would highly recommend this malt! It provided the needed body for my NEIPA.
