Splitting base malt with Pils and Two row
« on: December 12, 2012, 02:50:10 PM »
I am planning on making a Belgain Dark Strong/Quad this weekend and was thinking of splitting the base malt with Pilsner and Two row.  I've never done this before and was wondering if this is a bad idea - should I just use all Pilsner malt.  Do these grains clash or would this be alright?

It would be fine.  I have a recipe from a friend for Westvleteren and that's the way they do it.

Thanks, good to know...I unfortunately made a Rye Pale Ale with Munich, then I read a post that Munich and Rye don't go together well...and what do you know, I really don't like this beer very much at all.  It is almost like the Munich is masking the rye flavor completely.
