Im sure you are correct. i aim to make a simple smash for the first go and see how it tastes. At the end of the day if it tastes different to MO but is wholly acceptable i may just use it 'as is'.

Does anybody have any tips for adding my sack of 'Hook Head Irish Pale Malt (Crushed) 4-6 EBC (Minch)' into Beersmith?

I dont use beersmith but I imagine some of it's like brewmate (which I do use), so you'll need to add the potential extract and colour. It gives you the colour (4-6 EBC) so that's easy enough. It doesnt say what the potential extract is though. It says it's two row barley so you could perhaps use the PE from the figure for American two row that beersmith gives. But I'd also fire off an email to Minch malts and ask them

Personally Im going to treat it as MO, however I did speak to The home Brew Co and they said that Minch was more efficient that MO, by how much I don't know, so Im going to assume between 5 and 10%

Thanks guys (bit of an assumption there!) I've done just that and will report back.

Alan from Minch replied to my email within 30 minutes and said that if I could provide the batch number from the sack he could let me know the potential extract. I had to wait until I got home from work to get it so I expect I'll hear back on Monday.

Just cracked open a pint (single hop) using Minch Malt and it certainly has a different taste to MO, but still makes a lovely pint. Ive loads left so now have to use it.
