beeston stout malt info needed
purchased all stock of beeston malt,i know its 2 lava-bond and thats it .wonder how well would it work in an ale.?
Far as I know, Beeston's was only used in ales. I'm sure it will be great! Good luck.
I'm confused - there was a UK maltsters (Nottingham) called Beeston, but they closed down a good few years ago (c.2000?)
I'm guessing you're talking about something else!?
serious ,thats why no info
i know its low in lava-bond ,i suspect it adds body
low in lava-bond? - lovibond? (colour spec)

If it is grain, won't it be totally stale?
I was confused before, I don't know what I am now
I think you will find that Bairds are still packaging some malts under the Beeston brand. I do recall a West Coast (US) importer advertising the Beeston brand well after the Beeston Maltings was closed down.
