I received my copy of the long-awaited Malt book yesterday. I spent some time reading and surfing through it. It is well written and I'm sure I will learn from it.
However. It does not have the ONE thing I was hoping it would have: A chart of malts, detailing each one's flavor descriptions. I was even hoping that it would include what a malt tastes like if there is too much of it in a beer since some malts go from a pleasant range of flavors to unpleasant, different flavors.
He has some of this in there but it is scattered around. Bummer. In fairness, he does list major categories of malts with flavor descriptions but it is far too general IMO.
Also, anticipating responses, I know there are lists online but they are not very descriptive nor very complete. And, given that this book is One of the Four, it would be more reliable/researched than 'a list I found online.'
