It just adds that special something. Definitely worth the few extra bucks!
Makes a difference in taste, increases the quality of the brew, highly recommend going with Mecca grains when you can!
Solid pale ale malt. It’s like a less biscuity Maris otter with more diastatic power. Probably won’t buy again because of the price, but it’s worth it if you have the extra cash.
Great conversion. I am not sure why, but I had significantly less crud in my kettle after the boil. It seems that all the small field barley just works better. Worth the price.
Tasty malt in my opinion. I used it to make a German Albier base malt was 50% Lamonta Pale Malt with 50% Melotius Munich Malt. Turned out great, Love Mecca malt!
