Double Chocolate Peppermint. Gonna begin no later than may so that it will be well suited for Christmas. I already have the roasted barley though. What does flaked barley bring to the table that would replace the amber? originally it was supposed to be biscuit malt but the supplier i bought from did not have any though th eother place did. However, the first place offered crushed grains at no extra cost and seeing how I am without a grain mill at the moment, it seemed the more logical thing to do.
