... I want Mild Malt but that is not available to me in an organic brand.I have tried several commercially brewed "organic" beers and found them all to be rather thin; lacking any heal head retention. What's up wit-dat?
don't know. Perhaps the fault of the brewer. THe ingredients I have used were always top notch. never had a problem with body or head retention. The selection was somewhat limited in the past. That's better now but still not perfect. I still can't find mild malt or malted rye or a few other things. I think there are people who see 'organic' as a way to charge more for an inferior product though.
Have you tried Eel river? don't know if it is available where you are. Wolavers organic is pretty good, a little corporate/bland sometimes but not bad.
Prince Charles (the prince of Wales) has a label that is organic and quite good but hard to find.
For a commercial operation I think that the decision to stick purely organic can hinder the overall quality if the brewer is not careful. On a home scale I find, because it limits my ingredient options, it leads to greater creativity thus this project to produce my own mild malt. But I am not goign to try to malt rye so I guess for now I will have to stick with flaked rye.
