Victory malt

Recommended Posts

Got some grains for steeping from the LHBS. Since I don't know much about using grains, I just told the guy what flavor I'm going for and he put it together for me.

8oz crystal 20
8oz victory malt
2oz chocolate malt
2oz de-bittered black

I didn't question it at the time but I've since done some research and I've seen several sources that say victory needs to be mashed. Since its mixed with everything else will it be ok? Just wondering why he gave me victory if it needs to be mashed.

This is about my third post regarding these grains so thanks to everyone for helping me figure this out.

It'll be fine... You won't get the starches you would get from mashing, but you should get some flavor/color.

sounds like it is time to do your first partial mash. Since you can steep you can pm it is all about holding a mashing temp, generally 152, for 1 hour. Then rinsing the grains it is that easy peasy.
