I just brewed a brett saison with this yesterday. I noticed some people saying to adjust your mill because this grain was smaller, but I didnt see any size difference at all when comparing it with other grains. As expected, my gravity was 4 points higher then I was shooting for, but I am total fine with that. Now I just have to dial back the recipes, and use less grain. I wont be able to taste it for awhile, but I am already really happy with this grain.

I just made an American Wheat with 6.5lb Avangard Pale ale, 3lb Avangard Wheat, and .5 lb Honey Malt. The Pale Ale malt seems to be highly flavorful and aromatic, with a really strong biscuity/sourdoughy flavor, almost like I had added Victory or Special roast. This might be my new go-to base malt.

I did a new Doppelbock with the Avangard Munich. With the previous Weyerman batch I hit a 22 plato doing 2 mashes of 11 lbs and 10 lbs (and boiling the first runnings of the first while mashing the 2nd).

The new batch was done using 16lbs of the Avangard (included 1lb toasted @ 350F for 40 mins) and we hit 21.5 plato.

BTW, the Dunkles (9 lbs total malt) with 1lb of Toasted Avangard Munich came out nice and nutty, very Dunkles-like.

I just tapped a keg of west-coast bitter (Session IPA?) using primarily Avangard Pale Ale, and it's delicious. It's a more flavorful base malt than standard 2-row, but not as "rich" and biscuity as Maris Otter. I'd recommend without hesitation as a base malt for any american ale.

Here's my recipe, for the curious - it's something like a hopped-up SNPA, something like 21A's Bitter American. This keg is going to go QUICK.

10lb Avangard Pale Ale Malt
.5lb Caracrystal Wheat (55L)
Mash @156

.6oz Magnum 14.1% @60
1.5 oz Chinook 11.4% @10
1.5oz Chinook @0
1.5oz Chinook dry-hop in keg

OG 1.048, FG 1.014, 41 IBU
Ferment with S-04.
