XXXBrew....SNR 33 to 36, 122/125F, slightly under to low modification. SNR 37 to 40, 128/131F, high modification. SNR above 40, no rest. Above SNR 45 malt is not suitable to brew with. British malt is generally 40 to 45 SNR, over modified.

BigEd....I use the dark in Octoberfest, Marzen, Bock and Maibock. I use a portion in light lager and pils. Years ago, I was able to get Budvar. The malt was great. Weyermann dark has almost the same maltiness/flavor as Budvar. The difference was in lovibond, Budvar was 1. If you decoction, the scent from boiling the mash is different than Weyermann Boh Pils. The scent is much richer. The color in the final product is golden to a light orange glow depending on the light. That is with decoctions boiled for 30 minutes. The run off is light yellow, but changes during the boil. I use 802 with the malt. 800 and 830 finishes too sweet for my taste buds, using Weyermann dark. I use Saazer with Weyermann Boh Pils and German Hallertau with their dark floor malt. Try out the malt, it makes a great German style beer when tri-decoctioned. On Home Brew Day at the LHBS I will be using Crisp's Euro Pils, to see what it will produce. The SNR is 36. A British malster making Euro malt will be interesting.

Thanks, Vlad. Sounds very good. I will definitely give this malt a try maybe a Dunkel, Doppelbock or Festbier.

You were correct. I used Munich type 1 as the base malt about 90% and some caravienne, Cara Munich , and melanoidin for the balance. Oktoberfest yeast, and hallertau. Man this is malty and spot on what I was after. I'll be entering this to be judged, we'll see how it does
