    Howdy folks

    Can brewers recommend an alternative grain to use as a regular base malt? My last two 25kg sacks have been JW Traditional Ale malt and it's a good malt. I just want to try something different so thought I'd ask.

    I brew ales only, IPAs, pale ales, amber ales, american stouts, belgian pale ales, well that's been the styles I've brewed to date, been at it for a year.

    What do folks suggest...

    I would have suggested Viking Pale ale malt but I got the last bag $49.50 and will no longer be available. So Golden Promise or Maris Otter.

    I use Coopers Schooner where the recipe calls for Marris Otter. A blend of that and Coopers Premium Ale.
    Cheers

    Thank you all very much. I think some experimentation might be in order, smaller batches in a smaller fermenter that I have. I think I'll start Simpson's Golden Promise going by its description.

    Cheers, drink beers.
