Which would you choose or would you stick with 2-row at half the price because it's close enough?
In my opinion and experience, Canadian 2-row is much cleaner, and "thinner" feeling than the other two - not saying it's BMC
. MO has additional mouth feel (thickness) with more of a nutty character. I think GP has more mouthfeel even than the MO, but less of the nutty - cleaner, but chewier. Am I saying that right?
Anyway, if I chose one for both, I'd pick MO.
One thing to note: the Golden Promise takes more work to keep from clumping and creating doughballs in the mash.
I just bought a 55lb. bag of each........
