Beer Brewing Malt and Grain Types

The following is a list of all the common malt (grain) types used in the brewing process. Malts supply the sugar needed which the yeast will convert to alcohol during fermentation. Just like with yeast, there are many different malted grains, wheats, and other adjuncts available to supply that sugar source. However, they are not all the same and can impart drastically different results to your final beer. This should help as a resource guide.

In some countries, when a boy reaches a certain age it is customary for his father to take him to a bordello so as to ensure his proper initiation into one of life's greatest pleasures. In England, the equivalent custom is for the father to take his son on his first visit to a pub and to supervise his initiation into the ritual of beer-drinking in a proper social environment.
