Mini mash and Vienna malt

Mini mash and Vienna malt

Post by Aaron Schmi » Fri, 21 May 2004 10:15:28



Opinions (or good scientific facts, whichever) needed. I'm trying to
put together my own first recipe. Will Vienna malt convert itself or
do I need some 2-row? I'm considering adding 2-3 lbs to an IPA recipe.
How about 2-3 lbs Vienna and 1 lb wheat - will that convert on its
own? There would also be 1 lb or crystal in there (I know this doesn't
need to convert, but it would be present).

Thanks,

Vienna should be able to convert itself.  I've used it as a base malt
several time without a problem.

Paddock Wood's malt spec chart provides great insight for many of the
common malts available.  I find it an excellent reference:

And if you are using malted wheat, it's got lots of enzymes, too (I did
a 100% wheat once).
