Prefered base malt for brewing?

<< < (4/4)

bluesman:
I use Thomas Fawcett, Best and Rahr most regularly with very good results but I've heard good things about all that you've mentioned.

kylekohlmorgen:
I like to use a house blend for almost all my recipes, unless I'm going for a truly traditional take on a beer (ESB, pils, Bock).

40% Rahr 2-row
40% Wey. Pils
20% Munich

I can increase the Munich for "malty-ness" and color, the Pils for delicate beers, or the 2-row if there is a lot of specialty malts or total fermentables (which drown out the pils anyway).

I kind of like the idea of blending base malts. +1

yeastmaster:
Thinking I might buy 2 bags and split with a friend so we each have a choice.  Maybe some Thomas Fawcett MO and Best Malz Pils.....
