Weyermann grain update
« on: November 29, 2014, 06:47:48 AM »
Could we have an update for the Weyermann grains?

I have a recipe that uses Abbey Malt and Carabelge but neither are included. I've noticed there are many other Weymanns grains missing. The Dingemans malts also need updating. This is important for brewers in Europe where these grains are widely available.
When the sun beats down and I lie on the bench, I can always hear them talk.
Me, I'm just a lawnmower - you can tell me by the way I walk.

You can be the one to create the needed database and then export it here. In the US, the online information about Weyermann is limited to color and usage percentage, leaving us to guess at the rest. Not the best way to create a database.

A phone call or two to any small brewery in your area should yield the name of the importer. In turn, they should have access to malt lot reports, which will have all the details to create a good database of their malts. 

If you have trouble translating the tech sheets for the database, you can PM me.
