I am a new brewer and I tend to get a little lost when planning out a brew day concerning the grain bill. I see the grains listed in the recipe but I can’t seem to always find that grain in BeerSmith then when I am on my local brewery supply website I seem to drift even further. I can guess that grains have more than one name based on your local and I may also be so bold as to guess that a lot of the different varieties of grains are really not so different at all so I am wondering where can I find a book or online resource that gives a good insight to all the major beer grains. I see some good reviews on books about Hops, Yeast and now even Water but I can’t seem to find something similar simply dealing with Grain.
I would think this would be easy to find if it is out there but so far I have not turned up anything that has been very helpful. All I find when searching is “How to Brew” type books, which are great, but wanting something more specific.
