Adding Custom Extract To List
« on: August 15, 2014, 08:23:40 PM »
I'm going to try a batch of Northern Brewer Rebel Rye Porter extract. The ingredient list includes 6lbs. of Rye malt extract syrup. I figured out how to add it to the software but I need; color, potential SG and yield. Northern is close until Monday so I can't call but I'm wondering if anyone has already added it and has that info. Thanks, Mike

It sounds like you have Maillards Malts extract?

From Midwest Supply:

This blend of 70% 2-Row, 20% Malted Rye, and 10% Caramel 40 malt provides the perfect amount of rye for a delicious earthy base flavor laced with just the right amount of spice. Provides 1.035 ppg and is approximately 6L- the perfect secret ingredient.

And when I plug that percentage into BeerSmith it matches up. Color is 5.6, which is close enough to 6, for me.
