Full disclosure, I’m on and off the organic train. I like my veggies organic, and my meat if possible, but it’s not necessarily a deal breaker. True organic food just seems to taste better to me, which is why I’m not sure why I was so surprised about how good the Briess Organic Brewers Malt is! Of course, we bring in a new malt and we have to try it out. Normal stuff, just a SMASH Pale, nothing crazy, but I was pleasantly surprised at what a difference it made! Talking to Briess, it’s malted the same, but they take much more care in preserving the identity of the malt, which makes sense. How do you sell organic malt if you’re not sure it’s all organic, right?
So expect the same performance in the mash tun, but a brighter, cleaner 2 row flavor to come through in your beer. If you haven’t tried it yet, I assure you it’s worth a little extra cost. But hey, so are those organic veggies, right?
