Just wondering what was so specific about this grain style?
First time I have heard of it and a recipe I have been looking at doing calls for 5.8kg of this stuff.
Does it need to be this one, or can I sub it out for EPMO for example?

The same goes for "Crystal 150" as well.
Until I learn what all these really represent, it's an absolute minefield haha!

Never heard of it, go with EPMO or some Propino . . . which is also available as Extra Pale

please note:The use of punctuation, bold, underlining, italics, and different sized type, follows the convention used in writing, for many years, to place emphasis on the point being made, and to highlight the importance of that point in the opinion of the author. It is not the intention of the author to shout, if that was the case the author would adopt the, much more recent, convention of using all capital letters.

Thanks.
Someone mentioned to me before the Elvis Juice recipe, not to get hung up on "specific" malts etc, but I would at least like to make sure I'm not adding something completely irrelevant!!

I just edited my original post as well...

Any thoughts on that? :scratch:

Maris Otter and most of the popular UK varieties are winter crops. In the US, there are more Spring crops (due to the climate I'd imagine). This is literally all that is meant by a Spring blend.

2016: 330L brewed (72 gallons, over 8 firkins)
2017: 105L brewed (need to update this figure)
Drinking: Landlord clone
Conditioning: ciders from 2016, hedgerow barrolo, 1914 Courage RIS (10%).
