Today's special guest: 18mo Old Marris Otter

Any guesses?
Will I get starch water or sugar water?

Tune in tomorrow to find out....

Kept in a dry or moist environment? Like a gremlin, get it wet and see what happens!

I'll be here tomorrow................If I wake up!

My money is on complete, expected conversion.

But the only question is, will it have good flavor?

This gives me the sudden urge to use up all the odds n ends I've laying around.
I vote for 75% conversion, just because someone has to!

It's too bad no one made some scotch from that Maris Otter 18 years ago!

If it doesn't smell funny, doesn't feel funny, taste funny, or doesn't look funny -- You have a winner. But I'll say 76% just because someone has to offset the bet from Agent.

I'm going to be the outlier... you know, that one guy or that one data point that royally f**ks up every study or survey.

So here we go: 0-5% conversion.

WIN!

Pre-chewed some of the grain. Tasted toasty, malty, and grainy. Passes the taste test!

Yes, I do plan on mashing it. Just did, in fact....

Full conversion!

Will post back with eff...

Should we expect low efficiency from 18 month old malts? If so should we increase amounts to make up for it? I always figured if it tastes, smells OK, and did not get wet and moldy just use it as normal.
