Briess 6-row Brewers Malt
« on: August 06, 2020, 10:44:22 pm »
I just bought some 6-row from Adventures in Homebrewing. I asked what brand it is. They said it was Briess. I was surprised because Briess announced they stopped planting 6-row in 2015.

Does that much inventory sit around waiting to be sold? I guess that’s why they stopped planting it.

I doubt there’s a huge market for 6-row. I was thinking about getting some for a CAP.

As long as it was stored properly it’s probably good as new.

Mine is going in a CAP.  CAP is my favorite beer right now. I am subbing 6-row for Pilsner to see what happens.

I doubt they gave you bad information but I would go to Briess and look up the lot number. Moreso out of curiosity.

FWIW, I've been making great beers with unopened, well stored bags of malt that are 2-8 years old.

I am guessing it will be fine. I am more worried about the tiny kernels. Looking forward to low extract. I think I may tighten my mill gap a bit.

I need to go pick up some random supplies and will look.

Last few times I was there I saw bags of Rahr 6-row IIRC or maybe Great Western.

Bottom is a sack on the shelf. Didn't get the whole QR.
