Love everything from mecca grade

I always have mecca grade pilsner on hand. I love the versatility and expressiveness. Very crisp with notes of undercooked bread that work well with so many styles

Why I used Pelton malt

Been playing around with making white (lager) IPA. I’m a partial mash brewer. I used “Pelton” because it was something new to me. I was pleased with how clean, fresh and whole kernel the malt was. It definitely added a ‘doughy’ complexity to the taste, and added an aroma of grape nuts. Used it with Pilsner LME, Vienna malt, aromatic malt, honey malt, with Lemondrop, El Dorado and Calypso hops.

Mecca Grade

I used the Mecca Grade Pelton Pilsner and Rye Malt in my recent rye saison. The beer, now four weeks in the bottle, does have the slightly grassy overtone that the product detail describes. Very fresh, very good. Very saison!

Delicious, but

I used a blend of Pelton and Metolius with a touch of Opal to make an Octoberfest (Marzen-style). Very tasty beer, but not much like a German beer. More like an American Amber,
