Gladfield’s Biscuit Malt
Also known as: Amber Malt
Gladfield’s Biscuit Malt is made by gently roasting kilned-dried Ale Malt.
Biscuit Malt is ideal when used in small amounts to give a dry, toasted biscuit finish to light, mild ales and bitters where brewers do not want to add much colour.
Recommend Biscuit Malt in beer styles that call for a dry finish. ESB, Pale Ales and Mild Ales are styles that come to mind.
Typical usage rates are 5–15% and are mindful that Biscuit Malt has a typical colour of 65 EBC.
Use: Add Biscuit Malt to impact a dry toasted biscuit flavour without adding much additional colour to the final beer.
Rate: Up to 15%
Shelf life: At least one year when stored properly in dry conditions.
