Melanoidin Malt (Weyermann) 1-Lb

(1 review) Write a Review


Melanoidin is a kilned specialty malt with an intense malt aroma and unique brewing characteristics. It has a high degree of modification of both proteins and starches, excellent friability, low β-glucan values, and high acidity. These attributes help promote flavor stability, add body, and produce a smooth mouthfeel. Melanoidin malt adds a deep amber to red-brown color to finished beer. The rich malt flavor has notes of honey and biscuit. Melanoidin malt is best used in dark or red-colored beers such as Amber ales, Scottish ales, Irish Red ales, Bocks, and Kellerbier.

    Added a fantastic flavor to my usual recipe

    I don't always have time for decoctions. I have one recipe I make regularly (pils malt, touch of rye and caramel malts). On a whim I added some of this melanoidin malt to it- it really took the beer up a level.
