First annual Pacific Northwest Homebrew Conference
This is link to BrewUnited’s Grain Database. A great resource about brewing malts.
If you find yourself short of a particular malt needed for your recipe, this link is to a chart that gives common grain substitutes between different maltsters. Beware that each maltster has there own method in creating their particular malt and substitution may not translate to the exact same results.
