Chevallier malt is an old fashioned base malt that gives a rounded richer maltiness to beer. At present Crisp malting are selling it only by the ton. Would anyone be interested in a group buy. Or does anyone know where it can be bought in small amounts?

Interesting! I'd read they started growing this in 2014 but it was kept by crisp malting to re seed to following year. a friend enquired about it last year but they had stated that near enough the entire crop was for Sierra Nevada and Goose Island. so I take it its now available? I'd be interested dependant on the price.

Kegged:
Simecoe APA (HBF Donation)

Bottled:
Galaxy Pale Ale, Woodfordes Wherry, Bella Brew Pale Ale, Strawberry and vanilla Pale Ale, Mixed fruits cider, Elderflower and grapefruit fizz.

Maturing:
Rhubarb Wine, WOW rose', Elderberry wine, Mixed berries wine, Elderflower and grapefruit wine, Elderberry wine.

Next Up:
German Pilsner, Guinness Clone, Chateau De Roi selection kit, Strawberry and lime cider.

I've drunk beer made with this malt....and have bottles to go at as well :party:
It is very sweet, fruity and complex......very different to 'modern' malt(s).
I enjoyed the beer that I had (Govinda IPA) and am looking forward to ageing the bottles I bought......but I'm not sure I would want to be making session beers from it.

It would be fabulous to use in a barley wine or RIS I reckon.

Yes.....Govinda IPA.
Just before Christmas I had a pint at a pub local to me that had aged it in oak. It was fabulous beer....like liquid hopped fruit cake.
He kindly dropped me a case of bottles too.
Have not tried a bottle yet, but I'm going to keep them as long as I can and savour one once every so often to see how they age out.

Sounds like an interesting malt, but 40 bags is a lot of malt!

Rob said last year he was going to be stocking it when available, maybe drop him a line. I tasted 3 versions of the Govinda IPA with Shane last summer at the Birmingham Beer Bash, all very good. Shanes take was that the extra body of the Chevalier probably gave rise to the high hopping rates of the time, in other words the high bodied malt could take more bitterness.

Here's to the man who drinks strong ale,
and goes to bed quite mellow.
Lives as he ought to live,
and dies a jolly good fellow.

I suppose 100 people taking 10kg each is a bit of a stretch
