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.
Used for ensuring colour consistency across batches, Muntons Ultra-Dark Malt Extract is ideal for automated dosing post filtration, achieving precise colour adjustment with minimal flavour impact.
Muntons Ultra-Dark Malt Extract is made from 100% Black Malt, obtaining a wort that is then ultra filtered to remove its flavour compounds. This produces an extract rich in colour pigments, whilst keeping 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 (E150 a-d) colouring or carbon additions.
Due to the unique production process the recommended inclusion rates for this product are very low at less than 1%.
