What's the difference between melanoiden and aromatic malt?

(1/2) > >>

dee:
I'm curous because I see them being used as substitutes in some recipes.

klas_sthlm:
I think Weyermann calls (their version of) aromatic malt Melanoidin malt, so it shouldn't be any big difference between them.

blatz:
that is what I have heard. 

to confuse matters though, MFB makes a Special Aromatic malt which is altogether different and can be used up to 100% of the grist.

hamiltont:
Maybe a little difference but not much...  I like to use this chart as a reference. I'm sure there are better ones but this one seems to work for me...

Just glanced at that chart and noticed that acid malt has an X in the 'head' column.  Is that a property of lthe malt itself (even though it must be mashed) or a result of the lower pH?
