Special B
I use this grain in all my brews, it adds a lovely plumb flavor. I typically go from 1 pound down to 1/2 pound used with 13pounds of 2 row. And my finish brew is around 3/2 -4 gallons. It gives a delicious flavor that can be increased depending (obviously) on how much you use.
My brews typically are made of either
Viking 2 row or rahr.2 row .
I've been using the Helga Australian hops which I think are great, especially at that crazy price.
Recently I used the distillers malt with these grains and had a great result regarding fermentation.
My favorite yeast is the Safale s-04.
My brews are pretty much the same ingredients depending on what's on sale, but Dingmans special B is always included.
The style is what I would loosely call and English ale.

Good grain
I used it in imperial stout, so hard to say the exact contribution, but the stout was award winning

Special B is just right.
The Special B was just what i was looking for to round out my Belgian Ale recipe. I ordered it milled and was very happy with the malt. Delivery was prompt and product was well packaged. I will order from them again.
