Since I'm picking up some 300 lbs of grain this weekend, I guess I better!
lightweight - a real man buys in 500lb increments.
What was that other malt you tried in lieu of TF MO? Halcyon, maybe it was Optic? How did that turn out. I was off the forum for a while so I may have missed you talking about it.
I tried Optic a few years back - good, but a little too much sweet candy malt flavor for me, rather than biscuity/toasty.
Halcyon was what I tried out this time. I did not like Halcyon at first, but I also tried it out on experimental recipes (Citra Pale Ale) rather than my stalwarts. Turns out I think I just don't like those hops.
I just made my house IPA with it, and I am really liking it a lot - just as described - sort of in between MO and domestic 2-row. strangely, it is now more expensive than TFMO at NCM, so I don't know if I will order it again on the next pallet.
