Hello, I really like the small amount of roasted barley found in hazed and infuzed. It gives a really nice flavor to the pale ale and I was wondering if I would be able to get a small amount of roasted barley to gel well in a beer that also had a small amount of victory and biscuit malt? I'm not sure if those flavors will get along with each other so I thought I would ask you guys opinion. Thanks for any info

Not too sure. Victory would give it the nutty, toasted flavor. And Biscuit would add body, depth, and a bread like flavor/aroma.

The roasted would probably hold through, but might be muddled by the other flavors.

Although this could be a good thing?

I havent had any experience with using the two together yet but I say if you want to find out exactly how well it gels... well you know the rest. Nothing wrong with starting with a mini test batch.

I hear ya, I've been working on the recipe, heres what I have so far:

13 pounds marris otter
4oz biscuit
4oz victory
1.5oz roasted barley
Fuggles to 35 IBU
Burton Water Salts
Nottingham yeast

I'm not sure yet if I want to go hoppier than that on this one, the burton salts will help some, still debating on whether to push it up into the mid 40's though

If it were me I would let the malt flavours form the majority of the flavour and just use the hops to complement that, what size batch are you doing?

Hazed and Infused is a major hop bomb and those amounts of specialty grains won't be a problem.

its a 5 gallon batch, I nailed a 2.75 gallon hazed and infused clone a few months back using the same percentage of roasted barley, so I decided to use that percentage on this beer also. Do you think its enough to get a slight roasted flavor in the beer with the 4oz of biscuit and victory? I just don't want one specialty grain to shine through more than the other, but i'm not real sure if the biscuit and victory are going to rub out the roasted barley at these percents. thanks for all the info and any more that you guys might have.
