Hey All, I'm looking to use this recipe as my first foray into specialty grain steeping using pmoe's substitutions listed on page 3. Well, I brought in the list to my LHBS and the owner got wide eyed at the amount of toasted malt (2.5 lbs) for a 5 gal batch. I ended up going with the following modifications:

1) .5 lb each of toasted, carapils, and crystal 60
2) Burton Ale Yeast

Am I shooting myself in the foot with these simplifications?

Thanks!

Hey MD,

how did those mods turn out for you? I am going to brew this soon and toast my own malt too. Going to brew the extract version on pg.3 anyone have thoughts on 2.5# of toasted being too much for a 5g batch?

It turned out OK. It was a little bit light, would have liked more body so next time I'll probably go with the full grain amount.

Also this is a gigantic beer, so make sure you have a good yeast starter - I rushed because I was going out of town and just poured in the liquid tube, took a very long time to finish fermentation and carb.

I grew up in Washington and this is the beer that got me into craft beers and eventually into home brewing. I drank a lot of it in the 80's and 90's.

This beer has moved up my list and will be made very soon.

Thanks for posting this recipe.

Can you swap out Victory for the toasted malt? Your recipe shows it have 27 SRM for the toasted, and the wiki shows 25-28 as the SRM for Victory.

Will I have a loaf of bread in a bottle if I substitute that much Victory for the toasted malt?

The answer is no. with that much victory i think it would be undrinkable. you could use a lesser amount of victory, but it wont be the same. I have done this (3/4lb) and it came out fine, but definitely not the same.

I'm doing the extract version of this, and would only be steeping the Victory malt.

I'm confused a little then about exactly what Victory/Biscuit is. Are they the same as toasting the malts at 350* for 12-15 minutes?

I'm brewing this today and just finished toasting my 2-row. Now I'm coming across info that says I shouldn't use that for two-weeks after toasting. Has anyone brewed this with freshly toasted malted barley?

If I have to wait, any recommendations as to what I might substitute for the 2.5lbs of toasted 2-row? I've already got my starter ready and am ready to roll.
