...and no mention of the gutting/ corporatising of the recipes after the takeover, which caused beer connoisseurs across the country to abandon them in droves...or was it just me?Steve said:hmmmm noticed there was no thanks or recognition for the beer drinkers that prefer microbrewed alternative types of beer that got them where they are?
Adelaide Maltings are owned by Joe White now. The JW website lists three grades of caramel/crystal malts:Kai said:I have that book, picked it up cheap at Borders a year or so ago. The grain bill proportions listed are as follows:
DB 5100 pale malt, 80 crystal
export 6200 pale, 240 wheat
pale ale 4600 pale, 40 crystal, 200 wheat
premium 5500 pale, 60 crystal (listed as 'medium'), 280 wheat
dark ale 4650 pale, 200 wheat, 200 black
ale 5900 pale, 40 crystal, 240 wheat
stout 5000 pale, 440 wheat, 600 black
vintage 6200 pale, 60 crystal (medium), 350 wheat
Don't ask me what the medium crystal is, I asked someone wiser than I am a while back, but can't remember what he said.
