Malt variety is part of the final taste, but the malting process has a large influence.

Maris Otter? I find Muttons<Crisp. I did one bitter several years back with Warminster MO, and it was the best. I've got some now for another batch.

Ive tried both Golden Promise malts; Simpsons and the other (the name escapes me) and there was a world of difference despite being the same barley varietal. I strongly preferred Simpsons.

Fawcett. Like you, I prefer Simpson.

Do you prefer 1.9L or 3L?

Only tried 3⁰L. I know some British brewers like liw color MO for the lighter ales.

I've got 20 pounds of the 3L waiting in the wings for when I finish up my Sugar Creek supply. I've heard good things, so I'm looking forward to it.

Who uses Rahr pale ale malt? How does it compare to British pale ale malts?
depends on the malt, but it doesnt have that deep, malty and nutty character that I get from british malts like MO.
My local club is making a bulk grain buy and I was contemplating Rahr to save some money, but since I'm going on a British ale binge with this next batch of grain I went ahead and put in an order for a bag of Crisp maris otter.
It turns out that the Crisp isn't available so I'm going with Simpson maris otter instead.
