just on the Abbey malt issue, I think that it has been called "aromatic" (or some variation) for years but one of the companies (Castle?) has recently changed the name to Abbey malt. Same product,...

1lb is very heavy on aromatic. Its a very strong grain that should be used much more sparingly as it would completely dominate the flavor. I would think that .25lb would be more suitable, but I...
