Default British Malt question

Is Mild Malt and Maris Otter the same? If not are they are interchangeable? I just need #.75 for a recipe.

Thanks

I'm no expert, but i don't think so. For one, MO is a base malt, so most recipes probably need more than you do.

Second, the wiki says Mild Malt is "also called "English Mild" - a light specialty malt used in Brown Ales."

Maris Otter is a barley cultivar. Mild malt is a style of malt. What is it that you need .75 lb of? Showing the recipe would be helpful in trying to provide you with an answer.

You mean mild is a method of malting so a mild malt could also be MO or another variety of barley?

Looking at that recipe I would just substitute the mild malt for 0.5lbs of carapils or some other dextrin malt. Some extra body is the only benefit I can see such a small amount of mild malt providing.
