Post by LeeH » Fri Sep 14, 2018 5:38 pm

Anybody use this malt?

I'm looking to buy a sack of base malt (was looking at the trusty MO)

Yes I used it. I can’t vouch for its purported haze reduction qualities as I used it with a yeast that didn’t floc well.

It made good beer, but there was an element of the malt flavour that I wasn’t totally sold on. Can’t quite explain it further that.

Leaning more towards bread/wort rather than toast/biscuit/nutty

It just seems like any other malt, really.

I went for the Minch @ under 20 quid a sack and have stuck with that as my go to base malt.

Cheers.

The clear choice malt can be slightly beneficial for clearing - e.g. if you are in a hurry and can't condition at cellar temperatures. But it is just low in polyphenols, it doesn't block them from other sources (like hops) and doesn't magically remove other causes of haze.

So IMO the potential benefits depend on what particular issues (if any) you have with haze, and if it would do anything to reduce those that (for some reason) your normal process doesn't. Otherwise I'd rather go for their MO at similar money or something cheaper if/where appropriate.

Yeah, good malt for chill haze. Does what it says so it’s great for cold pale beer. Got a nice honeyish taste too! I know a few fairly large breweries round here who use it en masse...
