Title: Marris Otter Substitute
Post by: blisster on May 24, 2019, 01:37:29 PM
Would 90% 2Row and 10% Victory be a close substitute to Marris Otter?

I have lots of those but no MO so looking to create something similar..  It doesn't have to be perfect, just looking for "close enough"

Grambrinus ESB, Golden Promise or Pearl would be good sub if you have access to those

None of those..   just lots of 2 row.

It will be for a barrel aged imperial coffee porter I'm hoping to brew this weekend so the "biscuit" flavor from MO would be minimal  :cheers:

Iíve never used more than 5-6% of Victory so I have no clue what 10% would do.
Maybe a mix of Munich II + Victory

I think you're on the right track 10% would probably work.
 If you want I could hook you up with some maris otter I've got a full bag from the last order. And about half a bag of floor malted Maris otter from the previous order. Just PM me if you want some.

Noble doesn't have any Maris available? Usually have regular and Horton Ridge.

I would honestly just use 2-row. With something that bold you probably wouldnt even notice the difference.
