Product details

A German dark roasted malt, in between chocolate malt and black malt. It is roasted with the husk intact to develop more pronounced dry, roasted flavors. Used to intensify the color and dark roasty flavor and aroma of dark beers such as bock, doppelbock, alt, and schwartzbier, but works equally well in stouts, porters, and brown ales. Small amounts can be used for color adjustment in lighter colored beers with minimal flavor contribution. 413-450°L

Exactly what I needed

My LHBS did not have this. They had some US substitutions which would have been fine for many applications and color adjustment. However I was making an Alt beer and wanted German. I accidentally ordered this instead of the “special”. My Alt turned out great (recipe from Brewing Classic Styles). I would recommend this gently roasted dark malt for any German style beer, or anytime a dark roasted malt is called for for subtle coffee/chocolate grainy notes.

This is a good malt

This was a good malt. Zero complaints!

Gorgeous color

I used about 8 oz of this in a cold steep for my dunkel. I might have made it a touch too dark, but it certainly tasted good. I think this is one of those grains where a little goes a long way. I think I'll use the rest of it in a stout sometime later this year.
