Which type of Malt ?!
Hi there !
I bought recently some pounds of DME .
My Problem is that I don't know which type of Malt that is !!!
The seller , who don't know either , gave me a Sheet as "Certificate of Analysis " .
The following information is written on this sheet :
Colour : Light
pH ( 10% Solution ) : 5.3
Acidity % as Lactic acid : 0.95
Moisture : 2.45
Reducing Sugar % as Maltose : 64.2
Protein % dry basis : 4.2
Ash % : 1.5
The Water which I use for brewing with DME has the following Profile :
bicarbonate : 29 ppm
Ca : 9.8 ppm
Mg : 2.3 ppm
Sulfate : 19 ppm
Chloride : 0.7 ppm
Na : 4.7 ppm
pH : 7
The Beer is in the Primary since yesterday and the Color is dark brown .
Can anyone from all these information find out , which type of Malt it coud be ?!
Is the color of the Beer because of the pH of the Water ?!
