    It is confusing as most of their malts end in schooner, Veloria Schooner, Pale Schooner, Vienna Schooner, Munich Schooner etc.

    What's confusing about it?
    Schooner is the variety of malt the prefix is telling you how its been malted (processed).
    Just like Heritage Crystal Maris Otter, is Crystal made from Maris Otter. Just tells you that they grow and malt a lot of Schooner in different ways.

    Back when, Coopers used it almost exclusively, its very good at making a beer just like Coopers, it was always a bit of a niggle that changing the mash conditions, the boil or anything else and you got almost exactly the same beer, which can be a mixed blessing.

    What was confusing, during the bulk buy some were just ordering Schooner.

    Yeah there are 2 kinds of pale ale malts: compass and schooner. that's where the confusing lies. Perhaps: Pale Ale (Schooner), Pale Ale (Compass), Veloria (Schooner) may make more sense.

    I reckon drop the Schooner, next bulk buy would make it far more simple.

    Sorry my bad I didn't see where this stopped being a discussion about a malt (SM40) and became one about your bulk buy.

    I don't mind how its labeled , just when its ordered as '1 bag of Schooner' it gets confusing.

    Thanks Shacked. I just might try to use the schooner in a Zombie Dust brew because that is hop heavy (I hope I understand correctly).

    I have used some Atlas in a Kolsch I am trying to brew. I got the idea from KegKing (no affiliation) in Springvale whom had a Kolsch on tap that I tried. At the moment this brew is in an open fermenter ( arrgh I'm doing it again).
