[quote=“560sdl”]I have a lot of Marris Otter and just bought a sack of Golden Promise. Sadly they only had Briess as the domestic 2 row.
Are the two different British two rows an adequate substitute for domestic brands for IPA’s and Pale Ales? If the British brands have “too much” character, is there a percentage of Briess + Marris Otter = Rahr 2 row?[/quote]
Whether MO or GP are an adequate substitute really depends on what you’re after. They are fine to use instead of US 2-row. Just note that you will get a slightly darker, more “malty” (e.g., biscuity) beer.
If I were sitting on a lot of MO or GP, I would use that. I would just cut back/out specialty malts that tend to add bready, biscuity, nutty, character. For example, leave out the Munich, Biscuit, Victory, etc. My two cents.
What maltster is your MO from?
