Is malt powder fermentable?
« on: December 01, 2009, 08:29:32 AM »
I'm talking about this;

Ingredients are: wheat flour and barley extracts, milk, soy lecithin, salt, and sodium bicarbonate.

Maybe it would work in a milk stout?

I'm sure there's at least some stuff in there that's fermentable, but if it has actual milk as an ingredient, don't use it in a beer.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

I wasn't planning on using it, just curious.
