"Aromatic Malt will lend a distinct, almost exaggerated malt aroma and flavor to the finished Ales and Lagers. Aromatic malt also has a rich color and is high in diastatic power for aid in starch conversion." So, you can mash/steep it at 150F without any other grains.

Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

If you are not mashing, I recommend the crystal malts over the others. You can get by with small amounts of the other stuff, though.

You also can back off on your bittering hops a bit. There are lots of dials you can turn to increase maltiness in a beer.

Beer is good for anything from hot dogs to heartache.
