Product Details
Honey Malt is a unique malt produced by the Gambrinus Malting Corporation, a small malting company in Armstrong, British Columbia, Canada. It is made using a special process that develops distinctive flavors. The unique process puts Honey malt in the same family as German ‘brumalt’, and melanoidin malt. The result is an intense malt sweetness free from roasted or astringent flavors, with a characteristic honey-like flavor and golden color. It really doesn’t compare to any other malt. It’s unique qualities and sweet maltiness make it a perfect specialty malt in many styles. It can be used for up to 10% of the grist but the flavor can become assertive at higher usage rates. 20-30°L

Good stuff!!!
I love it! I use it as part of my imperial cream ale recipe (in the full protein rest and mash) and it adds an outstanding flavor to my finished beer. Believe it or not NB is one of the cheaper places to buy grain and so far it’s been amazing availability for grains when I need them. I will buy again, I would subscribe for a 2.5% discount “winky face”.

I used 10oz. in an all-grain Lager brew I made, off-set with Liberty Bittering and Mt. Hood aroma hops. Spicy, fruity, & delicious!! Even my "uncultured canned-beer" buddies loved it! On my third batch now and I know it won't last long either, I'm sure.

Sweet just like you'd expect
Just what you would expect. This went into an IPA and brings sweetness without any roasted or astringency. Smell the crushed grains and it is like smelling sweet honey.

Excellent Addition in Small Amounts
As long as you are careful not to use too much, this malt is perfect to brew a nice honey wheat. I used it in a hoppy honey wheat and apart from some bitterness issues (because of hops not malt), it turned out very tasty.

Gambrinus Honey Malt
Using honey can be awkward; however, using Gambrinus Honey Malt is not. Just add it to the mash or steep it on the side. It does not replicate the honey flavor but it is pretty close and you have more control over the finished product.

Buttered toast with a hint of... peach jam?
This grain was a standout for me. What initially set it apart was the aroma of buttered toast with peach jam. Not sure how that works, but that was my first impression. Used this in a specialty Braggot/Cyser, and it turned out sooo good. Very smooth, and retains that nice flavor and aroma of the grain. I find myself going back to this again and again. I currently have a Cider Ale with some of this thrown in for good measure, and I can't wait to use it in a future IPA I am planning.

Outstanding in IPA
1 lb. added to an IPA is outstanding. It makes a great balance especially with citrusy hops.

MMMalty goodness
No other malt like this. If you want the malty sweetness(not sugary but MALTY) to stand out this is your product. I do disagree with the amount used though, I never use more than 5%. A little goes a long way. Try it and it will become one of your secret ingredients too. If you want malt standout this is the stuff.

nothing better
I can't believe there are no reviews on this stuff. This is without a doubt my favorite malt. This stuff is absolutely FANTASTIC in IPAs, pale ales and wheats. Any hop works good with it but anything citrusy paired with this malt is a match made in heaven. It's also awesome in honey amber type recipes and works really well in stouts and porters, too. I wouldn't go over 10%, though, unless you offset it with stronger flavored malts. It pairs wonderfully with Golden naked oats, too. 5 plus stars

Would you have to mash this or could you steep it? Thanks!
Tollie L M on Oct 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This is a common steeping grain in extract beers

where it provides a small amount of fermetnable sugrs but more of the unfermentable kinds that add flavors. If you mash it

you can convert more of those into fermenatable sugars. The important thing is the amount used. if you steep go for about 0.5 to 0.75 lbs to add character to the wine. While if you mash them

you could add more like a pound or two.
Is honey used to make this malt? My wife is vegan so I need to know before I use it.

BEST ANSWER: Honey Malt is not made with honey...It is how the malt is kilned and processed....I use this in my blueberry wheat beer and it creates a very good smoothness and an awesome taste...My beer has placed 1st in local beer competitions....I highly recommend Gambrinus Honey Malt!!!
