What is it?did you LIKE your k+k brews?
Well it seems as if the depths of the abbey dungeon are playing havoc with Mr Monk's ability to answer a question.Darren said:
Even assuming that methods for production of these kits results in a product poor in nutrients, which I doubt, that has nothing to do with the tin being labelled as made from malted & unmalted two row barley.Jovial_Monk said:Because malt is what your yeast needs for proper nutrition.
As the grain is malted complex enzymatic reactions produce exactly the proteins, starch and other organic compounds need for healthy nutrition of the yeast and flavor in the beer. It produces natural products.
Malting is expensive, cheaper to produce syrups by industrial enzymes. Lots of unmalted syrups make a cheaper less flavorsome beer with poorer yeast performance, keeping/stability, less head rentention and other flaws.
Please:Do you have a recipe for your "Finlandia"? It would be interesting to compare Northern European homebrewing to Australian.
