Weyermann Pale Ale vs Maris Otter
« on: May 24, 2010, 07:12:51 AM »
Does anyone have any experience with Weyermann Pale Ale Malt?  My supplier is selling it for $45 a bag which is substantially cheaper than Maris Otter and about what I pay for Briess two-row.  I'd like to sub it for Maris Otter in my English beers.

I've used it quite a bit and have gotten consistently great results with it as a sub for the Maris in any of the ales I make regularly.

Thanks.  I love MO but I like saving $15 just a little bit more.

I think if you're using a bunch of specialty malts (15%+) it doesn't really make a difference on the base malt.

If you're getting most of your body from high mash temps, have a really simple malt bill, or are producing a low-gravity wort, then you can def. tell a difference. The guys from Basic Brewing Radio did a show on this, I believe...
