For those who did not get a chance to attend CBC and have these flavorful experiences, look no further than this blog for your sensory introduction to Blonde RoastOat™ Malt!

Hot Steep wort prepared with 50% Blonde RoastOat™ Malt and 50% Brewers Malt produces a dark yellow hue with a low to moderate haze. Dominant aromas are derived from the Bready, Grainy, Nutty, Cracker, and Breakfast Cereal categories of the Specialty Malt Flavor Map. The medium body wort has a low level of sweetness and leaves a light coating sensation in the mouth.
