    This is a bulk product - one unit equals 1kg.

    Gladfield Munich malt is germinated similar to the Vienna malt using slightly higher nitrogen barley to create more intense colour through greater maillard reactions. This is achieved with a kilning regime that includes higher levels of moist air recirculation during the early and intermediate stages of the kilning cycle followed by high final curing temperatures. The resulting malt is rich, sweet, toasty and biscuity with a touch of breadiness.
    This malt is ideal for darker style Lagers or Ales and high alcohol beers.

    Gladfield's American Ale malt is the answer for brewers who have found that Gladfield regular Ale malt will add too much of a malty and toasted flavour profile to certain beer styles. This malt starts as all our other base malts do with a traditional long cool germination period. What separates it from the standard Ale malt is a newly developed a kilning recipe that favours colour formation typical to an Ale malt but with a clean malt profile and without the extra toasted flavours. This malt has been a favourite for producing popular hop-forward American style beers for which it was named.
