  • Simpsons aromatic malt for pH adjustment

    Browsing the Simpsons catalog I was intrigued by the description of the Aromatic malt:

    "The secret weapon in the British Ale Brewer’s arsenal, our aromatic malt has a slightly higher acidity to balance pH"

    Anyone use it like this, compared to just good old Weyermann Acid malt?

    Huh... I've never heard of Aromatic being used to change the pH of a mash, but it is possible... I use it in my American IPA and my DIPA. I think of Aromatic as being a version of Biscuit malt with wider shoulders, and use it as such. Aromatic is pretty intense, so I cannot imagine using it in quantity enough to effect a batch's pH all that much.
