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.

Muntons Ultra-Dark Malt Extract is made from 100% Black Malt using a specially designed mash profile to enhance the extraction of colour over aroma. The wort is processed in our ultrafiltration system to further increase the colour to solids ratio creating a unique product. This process ensures an extremely high colour while keeping the flavour and aroma contribution very low. Muntons ultra-dark malt extract is a perfect solution for brewers and distillers looking for a clean label colour to replace the use of caramel colouring or carbon additions.
Due to the unique production process the recommended inclusion rates for this product are very low at less than 1%.
The dosage is + 1 EBC = 0.65KG Muntons Ultra Dark Malt Extract into 100HL
