Usage

Up to 15%*

In brewing, when mixed with barley malt, Rye Malt can improve head retention, improve mouthfeel and introduce flavour changes of a toffee/caramel note at lower inclusion rates and a spicy after-palate at higher inclusion rates.

Most notably, Rye Malt will also impart a reddish hue to beers.

*Rye Malt is higher in beta-glucans which can cause issues at higher rates. Recommend rice hulls.
