    Wow, Voyager have already responded.

    This is the email response:-

    "
    Thanks for getting in contact with us.
    We do have plans to put out some recipes of a few of our favourite beers from commercial brewers using our malts for the homebrewing community, be on the look-out for that in the near future.
    My advice is don’t over complicate it. A lot of our malts are designed to be used entirely on their own, and many commercial beers have received plenty of awards and accolades used in this way.
    Schooner Pale and also Veloria will stand up on their own in APA’s and even IPA’s. Probably a little biased but I believe one of countries best West Coast style IPA exclusively uses Schooner Pale as the only malt in its grist.
    At the other end of the spectrum, Voodoo is also used at 100% in some pretty amazing American Darker style Amber Ales.
    2 of the best beers I’ve had with our malts have been a Vienna Lager (brewed with 100% vienna malt) and also a Helles (82% Atlas, 9% Winter Wheat and 9% Munich)-Mash at 67C, Aim for 4.8-%ABV with a FG of 1.011. IBU 20-24. S189 at 12C for the first week, then ramp to 16 for a few days.
    Hope this helps."
    We’re creating the world’s most sustainably processed malt right here on farm-Check out how we’re doing it here.

    The guys at Voyager are quite good, and I agree, don't over complicate the malt bill. most of the stuff I have done is generally 2 malts with the occasional 3 or single.

    I'd love a few more sacks
    Actually thinking about doing a single malt whisky with Veloria
    I'm about to smoke some veloria with apple wood for a rauchbier and I'll do some extra for making whisky, I'm thinking 40% of the grist should be a good starting point

    I would be interested in buying some from a bulk buy but not keen to run a bulk buy

    Probably a bag of each base malt and maybe some splits of any spec malt (5kg) Don't really need any as I have about 100kg of Base malt still but a sucker for a deal ;) and keen to try it/support a local business

    100% SM40 Malt, mashed at 67C, with a little gypsum and epsom in the mash. According to brewmate, the beer is about 20 SRM but it's an epic looking deep red colour!!!

    Oh and this Mexcan lager that was 80% atlas, 17% flaked corn and 3% vienna with 12 IBU of Saaz at FWH. Fermented with the White Labs Mexican lager yeast.

    No finnings either - 6 weeks at 0C in the keg. Low BG levels in atlas lead to super clear beers (at least that's the way I understand it).

    I went to Keg King today to pick up the Voyager malt.
    Whilst there I had a sample of one of their pale ales made primarily with Voyagers Veloria malt.
    Citrus and Cascade hops were used, and US05 yeast.
    The beer had been in the keg for 2 weeks, and it was frigging lovely.
    I'm tempted to make this recipe first.
    If I were you guys, get in and sample it before its all gone.
    (theres also a lovely HefeWeizen Bock, not much of it left :( )
