    Thought I'd give the Voyager grain a go to support the concept. Very happy with the pale malt in both a Pilsner and a dark ale. Keen to try the Veloria in a smash beer next. Hope other Brewers get around voyager grain and support it.

    As a point of reference, I got a sack from Nick of the Veloria about a year ago. I have a feeling (just confirmed) that my baltic porter/imperial dark lager from the 2015 Xmas in july swap was brewed with it.

    As a confirmation - it was definitely.

    73.5% veloria
    10% vienna
    3.8% melanoidin
    5.3% dextrose
    3.4% pale chocolate
    3.4% carafa 3
    Magnum bittering
    Magnum @ 30
    TYB Franconian Dark Lager - massive starter, pitched at 8 deg and ramped to 12 over the 2 week ferment. D-rested at 18 for a week, then lagered for 4 weeks and bottle conditioned.

    I absolutely loved the veloria, and Nick was gracious enough to send me some samples of their specialty malts. All were bloody great.

    I have had to hold back from dropping Voyager Special Roast into everything I brew - it is the tastiest grain to eat!

    Goes very well in an ESB, or anything dark.

    Did anyone catch voyager on River Cottage Australia the other night?

    Good segment, showed the voyager farm, harvest, a little tiny bit of the malting process (just an explanation of it really) and some of the community stuff they do. Good stuff

    Just watched that River Cottage Australia segment on fox (must have had a re-run), good viewing... think I'll give Voyager a go once I get through my current grain stock, all for supporting the local cause.

    Interesting to see how their harvester can detect moisture levels etc of the barley as it harvests it, pretty cool (not sure if that's a standard thing).

    Thanks guys. The place in Sydney only delivers to Sydney. Another site listed there doesn't mention Voyager.

    I'm talking to Belco in Canberra - they might be able to help me out.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply.

    Went to KK today, and they bags and bags of Voyager malt.
    Looks like they have been appointed the distributor.

    I tasted a few of the grain, the schooner was lovely.
    I didn't buy any, as I still have some malt to use, but investigating their website, they have quite a few recipes and its a download compatible with beersmith. I'm 2 brews away from using all my existing malt, but I will try it after that. I reckon, it might be possible to get a unique/niche Aussie beer (apart from Coopers). For example, smoked malt using almonds!!!!

    I've been using Veloria for a little while now and can confirm it's absolutely delicious
    A mate and I just did a 46L XPA with 4kg Veloria, 4kg Coopers Pale Malt, 1.5kg Munich & 300g (I think) medium crystal
    Cascade & Galaxy to 30IBU, all after 30mins and a bunch of that in the cube, then 30g each dry hopped
    It's a darker beer for an XPA, the malt shines right through and I think I'd drop the crystal next time
    I think I'll be keeping Veloria on hand from now on as a replacement/alternative for MO, as long as my LHBS keeps supplying it

    I am leaning towards it as I really prefer the English style beers now, I enjoy a good balance of the malt with the English hops. I was a bit dissapointed with the price though I have been spoilt with the $49.50 for the bags of Viking malt.
