Spelt Lambic?
I just recently used spelt to make an saison and split the batch between ECY03 and ECY20. I really like the flavor of this grist so far and with spelt being a very close relative of wheat I was thinking of doing a spelt lambic. Has anyone else tried this? I would do a turbid mash and everything but instead of white wheat I'd use organic spelt.

Re: Spelt Lambic?
My guess is; as long as it's unmalted, ( which is likely, as my search for malted spelt was largely fruitless), and not flaked, it would work somewhat equivalent to the traditional unmalted wheat used in lambic production. Though, I would imagine that after the bugs and the hands of time have their way with the brew, any flavor contributions coming from the addition of the spelt will be negligible at best.

I like the malted Spelt in a Saison, but don't know if I could pick out spelt vs. wheat.

Re: Spelt Lambic?
well, that is certainly a new development. At the time I could only find the Weyerman malted spelt in bulk.

Re: Spelt Lambic?
It'd also be interesting to do a german wheat with the malted spelt replacing the wheat. I wonder what the ferulic acid potential is of spelt vs wheat.

Anyway I think I'll get around to actually doing this spelt lambic idea sometime this spring.
