Made a great addition to my IPA!
I have never had an issue with any of the grains I have received from Midwest.
can't go wrong with Briess malts,
I’m not reviewing the product though I’m sure it was adequate. Just wanted to stop being pestered by repeatedly being emailed by Midwest Suppliers prompting me to submit a review. Sigh!!
I use 16 to a 24 ounces of Crystal 80 in my Porters and Stouts, and 8 ounces in one of my IPAs. In addition to adding some sweetness, it thickens the beer.
