Re: 25li Bulk LME

I always buy 20KG DMEas it stores well and LME can turn molded through air in the partly used container .the dry stuff is easier to handle and pour into the brewing vessel.For oneKG of pale grain I use 75% ofLME or65%of DME.i get the dry extract from Bintang , Indonesia,and it is very cheap.

Vienna malt

Mild ale malt is no longer available here in Australia,they reckon Vienna is the nearest replacement,can it be infusion mashed at about 153F,and used in mild ale recipes?

Flaked Barley

Has anyone tried making beer with say 75% flaked barley, as it is cheaper than pale malt, and is after all barley modified by an industrial method other than malting, and is marketed in bulk in health food shops? Beersmith reckons only to use 5% of it in a brew, why?

Hops

In the book CloneBrews by Ted Szamatuls, he always says, use 25% less hops when brewing all grain, than when using extracts. Anyone know why?

Youngers 1913 No3 ale.

Ron Pattinson, has a couple of Youngers recipes that use nearly as much maize as pale malt, has anyone made a brew of this , and is it good ale. They kept making this ratio of grains until 1930 as Ron says, I* like a bit of corn, but 45+ per cent is unusual?
