I am trying to convert an all grain recipe to partial mash and a good portion of the grain bill is
Munich, Rye, and Roasted Barley.
My question is can these be mashed without the base malts or do they need the enzymes from the base malts for conversion.
Beersmith did not say anything about it and I am still learning about grain so I just wanted to check before purchasing.
I plan to replace the six pounds of base with DME and make a mini mash out of the others.
The recipe is "Brighad's Red Irish Rye" from the recent Zymurgy issue.
