came across a bottled product in the Superstore tonight and am wondering if it's same as Malta Goya.
Brand is Grace and name is "malta" malt beverage. Ingredients are water, malt, sugar and hops.
I'm guessing this'll be great starter stuff

Bob,

Most folks on the board may not realize Superstore, aka "Real Canadian Superstore" is the "Super WalMart" of Canada long before Walmat decided to "super size me". (Coming from Michigan/Ohio, similar to Mierer's Thrifty Acres).

I'll see if the local Superstore has it here and give it a try on some old yeast that needs reviving.

Bob

They don't sell pickled whale blubber or caribou jerky in the U.S., either, so what makes you think we have seen this Grace Malta product?

Hey Bob,
How dark is this Grace Malt? I have seen Tiger Malt at the Superstore, I haven't used it but have heard that others have had good results with it.
The Tiger malt is pretty dark

Check the gravity. The MG is 1.060 I think.

My guess is it's the same thing, and your yeast will love it. There are several brands of Malta available in the states. I've used Publix Malta (store brand), and it worked just as well as Malta Goya.

I find that a drop of Fermcap is very helpful when using Malta for a starter since it's carbonated. Kills the foam immediately. If you use an O2 stone on the starter it really helps.

Bob, Thanks for the lead on Grace Malta. I found some yesterday at one of the Superstores here in Edmonton.

Do you have a gravity reading on it?

Vance, thanks for the tip on Fermcap and aerating with O2.

Bob
