Maris Otter. I'd sure miss 2-row and Vienna, but if I could make a good bitter, I could happily drink to the memories of the other base malts.

2-row. Kiln it a bit in the oven to come up with something more like maris otter (or even more for vienna or munich), or use it as is for paler beers.

You can make a decent english beer with 2-row, and a decent pilsner. But you cannot make a decent pilsner with maris otter, or a decent english beer with pils malt. Therefore, 2-row is more flexible.


Then again, I might be willing to sacrifice some entire styles altogether so that I can focus on specific styles that I like. So, I change my answer to Maris Otter

I brew bitter almost exclusively.....So it's gotta be Maris Otter for me.

Edit: This shoulda been a poll.

+2. I make more lagers and belgians than anything else anyway. And since we can choose I'll say Bohemian Pils malt.

North American 2-row pale. It's the chicken breast of malt.

Cheers,

Bob
