being a tight wad, I ordered and received another 25Kg of Hookhead malt. At 18 pounds it seems a bargain. Anyway I had a sniff, as one does, and had a light bulb moment. How does the smell compare to Maris Otter? So I got 2 samples out and did a scientific test. I mention this because we all like science, don't we?. Anyway, they smell completely different, and not in a small way either...just completely different. There you go "science at work" not.
