Malt sensory analysis
Although malt tasting is not currently any part of the malt specification, it does offer possibilities to differentiate both positive and negative flavours. Conventional malt analysis may suggest that malts are identical however their flavours could well differ significantly.
We use a method to fully describe the profile of malt using a ‘porridge’ made by grinding whole malts with a small amount of water which helps in the tasting process.
The malt flavour wheel has allowed us to create distinct flavour profiles for the wide range of malts and malted ingredients we produce.
Available pack sizes
Muntons Roasted Malt Extract is made from 100% Black Malt. For this product we use a specially designed mash profile to extract all of the colour, flavour and aroma from the grain. Due to the separation technology used the wort is particle free upon dilution. The wort is then concentrated using vacuum evaporation. This product is designed to enhance any beer that would benefit from more colour or roasted characteristics. Inclusion from as low as 0.1% will add colour and aroma. Up to 5% will make your beer as black as night with a strong roasted aroma and flavour.
Roasted Malt Extract can be added during the boil, ferment or in bright tank. Applications vary from colour and flavour enhancement to final product colour adjustments.
The dosage is + 1 EBC = 1.10KG Roasted Malt Extract into 100HL
