Brewed a stout with both the.Minch and Propino and the Minch won me over though I also have a Chocolate,Coffee and vanilla stout using the Propino and is lacking depth of colour though tastes quite nice but needs bottled as I only added the vanilla and then there is also a Popcorn Porter I brewed the other day using Propino,Vienna and Munich malts,so there is a bit of complexity going on.

Interesting comment. Im really not sure about my results, only cos Im mainly brewing different beers, so its difficult to make comparisons or replaceable results.
Im going to use this lot of Minch and log everything on the puter

They have also got their Minch malt on special,but at £16 a bag it's worth a few and get a few extra House Stout's on the go and maybe even an Imperial Gunge house Stout!!!!!

You've compared the smell, try this out. You can make grain teas to compare the flavour of (base) malts.Just steep some of each grain in some hot water. I've never tried it though.

I know. I usually try tasting anything/everything. Not sure why I haven't bothered to try this out

I think I'll have a go at this. I've only got Golden Promise, Biscuit and Medium Crystal (and of course cornflakes) to have a go with but should be fun
