Recently, we’ve received a lot of inquiries asking how to purchase our malt. Here’s an overview of where to buy our ingredients for pro brewers, homebrew retailers, homebrewers, and hobby clubs, along with highlights of our newest products!
Earlier this year, we introduced American Honey Malt, a modern take on a traditional style. To craft American Honey Malt, we start with the highest quality American‐grown barley, then tailor our typical steep and germination process to produce highly‐modified green malt — rich with the precursors needed to create melanoidin‐style malt flavors. A series of proprietary processes are used to finish the malt and create a product rich with Maillard reaction compounds, leading to one of our most uniquely complex malt flavors. Flavor profile ranges from subtle honey and bread flavors at 1-5% usage to biscuit, toffee, and brown sugar at 10-20% usage.
Another new product we released this year is MaltGems®, which is crafted by removing the majority of husk, fine grit, and flour from our milled Synergy Select Pilsen Malt. What remains is MaltGems® — the heart of the malt — that can be lautered like a traditional brewer’s grind to deliver exceptional performance. This innovative product reveals true malt flavors with a remarkably clean finish. Expect balanced taste with notes of bread, cracker, and honey. http://maltgems.brewingwithbriess.com/
