Thanks for the re! What are your thoughts on using it for a base malt?

I know it's nothing amazing. I just cant find much info about it online, even at the muntons
site (which sucks for info in general). I am making an Amber ale. Was going to use just plane

Crazy idea: How much head space do you have? 5 gallons of beer in a 6 gallon carboy? If so you
have about 1/2 gallon of wiggle room that you could use. Bring 3/4 gallon water to mash

I actually have a checklist (I'm obsessive like that). First thing is first, I open a beer.
With 50 mins left I grab the other stuff I will need (aerator, carboy, utensils etc) and
sanitize them. 35 l...

I had thought about doing that, but my LHS doesn't have any Melanoiden. I know that you can get

much or h...
