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!
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,
I have taken an old favorite and tweaked it a few times. This go I used pelton and it may be the perfect grain/hop combination to make this beer a contender.
Good malt good consistent flavor
