I plan on making my first bulk order with the malt miller and i have got this shopping list together.

I want to make a mild, couple of english ales and couple of hoppy beers.

Does this look like i should have everything i need or can anyone suggest any alterations.

Cheers

Would you use that as the base malt or as a speciality malt in the brew? Iv looked at a few recipes and seen they are using MO as the base with chocolate/crystal in there aswell

I use it for the base malt. It gives the beer a certain flavour than MO can't.

I'd don't like seeing people spend that much on Nottingham yeast when Wilkos do it for cheap.

And as I have just used it, get the MJ M03 Newcastle yeast for a Mild. But Notty will work too.

Just placed my order and stuck 3kg of mild malt on it. Also dropped the notty yeast will pick up from wilkos.

Kyle_T would you be up for looking at my mild recipe once i have updated it to use the mild malt.
