Ordered 2-row got Maris Otter
« on: August 13, 2012, 03:37:42 PM »
So, I ordered some grain last week.  I just picked it up today, it turned out to be Maris Otter, after I got it home and started distributing it into my buckets.   I normally get just 2-row pale ale malt from them.  I paid the same price for the M.O.  Anything I need to adjust for my recipes?  Isn't M.O. usually more than two row?

Btw it's Crisp Malting.

I pay quite a bit more for my MO than for my other malts.  Personally I would use it as if it were 2 row pale, unless it's for competition.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

Maris Otter is a 2 row malt, FWIW. Crisp is a very good floor malted 2-row MO. Try a batch of english bitter with 100% MO and some EKGs. for American pales and IPAs you may want to cut the malt in half with some pils or plain 2-row bcause the malt character can be very pronounced

If you paid basic 2-row price for the MO, you got a deal.  Even at my wholesale prices, MO is 40% more than domestic 2-row.  And it's the base malt for my American Amber.  It does make a difference.  A positive difference.

I love to use MO.  It add a bit of a nutty flavor to English recipes.  Usually a lot more expensive.  You got a deal.

Crisp Maris Otter is a great MO.

Do happy dance, and start making English Bitters and Scottish ales.  8)
