Experience with Aromatic Grains
« on: January 03, 2004, 05:33:37 PM »
Hi,
 Aromatic is one of the few grains I have not used extensively myself.  I just bought some to use in an Alt on the recommendation of a friend, but I was wondering what other people's experience with Aromatic Malt is - particularly in Continental ales?

Cheers
Brad

I use it in almost every beer I make now -- it adds a nice maltiness at 5% or a hint of maltiness at 2.5%. I haven't brewed two beers side by side to see exactly what the difference is, but I like my beers a lot since I started using aromatic.

Thanks CJ!
 I'm going to drop about 1/4 to 1/2 lb in my Alt and see what it does this weekend.

Cheers!

It should be great in an alt. A half pound should be around 5% in a 5-gallon batch, which is appropriate. If you like it, then try a little more next time.
