I'm doing a pumpkin ale this weekend and I need a subsitute for Biscuit Malt since my LHBS doesn't carry that. I got the recipe from this threadhttp://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthread.php?t=11445&highlight=biscuit
try special roast.
according to my LHBS guys, its the same thing as biscuit, except one comes from belgium and the other comes from the USA.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
"I would like to die on Mars, just not on impact." Elon Musk
I just did exactly that, on both. I needed a half pound of biscuit but the LHBS was all out. I substituted 0.25 lb of both Special Roast and Victory. The results taste good so far.
I switched from biscuit to Special Roast after my LBHS stopped carrying the biscuit with no detectable differences in flavor.
