I keep grain at my office when too much is on hand to keep at home.  Temperature controlled etc.  I cut open a bag of Weyermann Vienna today to weigh out for Saturday and gave a small handful to a few of my partners and told them to chew on it.  That they'd understand where some of a beers taste comes from.  They all actually liked it.  Tasting that cereal sweetness and how it has that hot cereal component. 

 

Next time any one of them has a beer I guarantee they'll correlate that taste and flavor.  That's all.  I just appreciated the look of enjoyment on their faces.

I'll do that especially with base malt so I can tell how much flavor it has.  I agree it's a nice flavor.  The crystals are a little friable... crispity-crunchity.  :lol:

The Vienna had a very nice sweetness to it.  It has me considering doing an all Vienna, splash of Carahell Staro Prague something or other....
