For a 25 liter batch of malt wash I would shoot for a starting gravity of 1.060. please forgive my primitive conversions. I generally think in imperial measurements but work often in metric.  25 l = 6.6 gallonsif you think in gravity points (60 gravity units x volume in gallons), then you will need 396 gravity points35 points per pound per gallon396 points divided by 35 points per pound = 11.3 pounds or 5.1 kgSo for 25 liters you will need 5.1 kg of dried malt extract for the wash. I would ferment this with a standard ale yeast - dried yeast is fine. Turbo yeast will work but I don't have any experience with it. Let this ferment for 7 days and you are ready to go. you could convert the gravity points process to strictly metric and it is a great rule of thumb for formulating fermentations. some quick references for gravity points:table sugar - 46 points per poundhoney - 40 pointsmaple syrup - 40 pointsDried malt extract 35 to 40 pointsliquid malt extract - 30 to 35 pointsHappy fermenting.On Fri, Feb 26, 2010 at 8:42 PM, Carl Bols wrote: Hi Ric and Zymurgy Bob,I am now the owner of 2 bags of True Dark Malt in powder form. Can you advise me what to do with it. I am only a novice and my friends are only sugar wash distillers and don't know anything else.For a 25 litre batch, how much malt, water and yeast do I use.I will be forever grateful.Best Regards,Carl.
