Great Color 08/29/2020
By Hollyhill Hummingbird Farm
I just brewed up a batch of pumpkin ale and I love the color! I omitted the crystal 60 I usually used with pale base malt and I got the same color and a similar OG. My OG was actually higher, but this could be due to using more pumpkin this year. This grain was recommended to me by another brewer and I'm happy I got it. If you like to make beers with crystal malts, save yourself money and use this.
