G'day men,

I had a beer the other day (Old Leg Over) and it had that raisen, christmas cake sort of taste. Can anybody tell me what grain delivers that taste?

Cheers in advance.

Thanks for that. What would constatute a large quantity in a 40 litre brew?
I'd say anything over about 10-15% of the grain bill would constitute as a large quantity, however, are you sure the hops weren't contributing to the raisin taste?

Which hops?

Oxidation may have some notes that move along the lines of whisky soaked raisins, port, sherry and dried fruit but hops?

I can't think of any.

Could be Hallertau also. But guessing not in old leg over.
