Weyermann® Melanoidin is a kilned specialty malt with an intense malt aroma and unique brewing characteristics. It has a high degree of modification of both proteins and starches, excellent friability, low β-glucan values, and high acidity. These attributes help promote flavour stability, add body, and produce a smooth mouthfeel. Weyermann® Melanoidin malt adds a deep amber to red-brown colour to finished beer. The rich malt flavour has notes of honey and biscuit. Melanoidin malt is best used in dark or red-coloured beers such as amber ales, scottish ales, Irish red ales, bocks, and Kellerbier.
