Upfront earthy mesquite, slightly sweet (less sweet than Briess Cherry Wood Smoked Malt). Smooth Mesquite Smoked Malt delivers a mellow mesquite smoke flavor without the harshness that mesquite can deliver.
Produced using mesquite wood.
The result is an unique, enzyme-active specialty malt that contributes pronounced smoke and upfront earthy mesquite flavor with some sweetness and is surprisingly smooth.
Use in a variety of beer styles to develop complexity or rich, robust smoky flavor:
o Scottish Ales
o Smoked Beer
o Bamberger Beer
o Rauch Bock
