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 "œbrumalt" 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. Its 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

A little of this malt made for a nice cream ale recipe.
Quality products = great beer...Thanks!
Great, fresh grains. I made a simple, light grain bill with 1# of this honey malt and it was very overpowering. Not as sweet as expected, more just slightly roasty and seemed to overpower the late boil hop flavor and aroma, only the heavy dry hop flavors and aromas were apparent.
I have ordered thIs malt a couple of times. If used sparingly it makes a nice addition to a cream ale and have used in robust porter as well as an Imperial Stout.
