Melanoidin is a kilned specialty malt that helps promote flavor stability, add body, and produce a smooth mouthfeel. With an intense malt aroma and unique brewing characteristics it has a high degree of modification of both proteins and starches, excellent friability, low ß-glucan values, and high acidity. Melanoidin malt adds a deep amber to red-brown color to your finished beer. With rich malt flavor having notes of honey and biscuit, Melanoidin malt is best used in dark or red-colored beers such as amber ales, Scottish ales, Irish red ales, bocks, and Kellerbier.


So what does that mean? Melanoidin Malt helps improve the red coloration and intensifies malt flavors in your beer.

    Supplies came fast, few minor problems

    The grains and hops that arrived were prompt and seemed to be of high quality. Looking forward to using them. The malt was, however, milled very coarsely with many kernels remaining completely untouched. This will require either milling on this side, or a longer mash time.

    I made a purchase for 27lbs of grain for a 10gal batch. Just as I submitted my order, I remembered to ask for a military discount. Emailed Home Brew Supply, received an email from Jessie who had refunded me 5% off my already great deal. $48 for 10 gal batch. When I received my order it was missing 1lb melanoidin malt. I sent another email and received another quick reply from Jessie saying it was being sent out ASAP. Thank you!
