Excellent for English Bitter
I used this in an English Bitter recipe as 50% of the grist. It provided a rich, butter toffee, sweet cereal flavor that fills the glass with aroma and big flavor. Even though the beer came out around 3.4%ABV and was fermented with a clean American Ale yeast (US-05), it has a surprisingly solid body and satisfying richness of flavor. I will try using this in my Dark Mild recipe next, and pair it with a true English yeast strain to accentuate the sweet, toffee-like richness of this malt.
