Spelt can be a bit hard to track down, but the unique, cracker-like graininess it imparts makes it worth the effort. If you can’t find spelt malt, health food stores often have bags of unmalted spelt available, but if you decide to use unmalted spelt, be prepared to conduct a cereal mash to ensure conversion.

You can make a mixed-culture version of this beer by racking half of the finished beer into a 3-gallon carboy and pitching a sachet of BBXMAD1 (The Mad Fermentationist Blend). Ensure that the beer is stable before packaging (this can take several months, and your mileage may vary). If you intend to make a dedicated solera, reference the instructions in the body of the article.
