    G'day All,

    I made a bit of a mistake with my first grain purchase and got 5Kg of Biscuit Malt when I probably should have got just 500g. It's uncrushed so doesn't go off for awhile, but I'm still keen to make several styles over the next 12-18 months where there's a high percentage to make sure it's used up in its prime.

    I've heard it goes well in Belgian styles & English ales, stouts & porters but not so well in lager styles. Does anyone know some specific styles where there's a high percentage (10-20%) of Biscuit Malt as part if the grist? Thanks in advance!

    Cheers,

    Tristan

    It's a good mistake to make! I love a bit of biscuit in a lot of styles. I think it goes nicely in APAs, particularly if you're sticking with the classic C hops. Jamil's recipe in Brewing Classic Styles is quite good, although you're only looking at 7 or 8% of the grist.
