Here’s a quick primer on different […]
Selecting Malt for a Whiskey Mashbill
Malt can constitute anywhere from approximately 10% to 100% of a whiskey mashbill. Its role can be simply a natural source of enzymes with which to convert starches, a source of extract in its own right, and a cornerstone of the sensory profile of the finished product, lending flavors of honey, biscuit, grain, earthiness, and […]
