Gladfield RedBack Wheat Malt - LIMITED RELEASE

Regular price $5.95 $2.95 Sale

Red Back Wheat Malt is a strictly LIMITED RELEASE unique specialty crystal wheat malt made by Gladfield. It is prepared by a special process before going into the roaster, where it is roasted to favour certain maillard reactions which cause the malt to produce a lovely red hue in the resulting beer without the opalescence that can occur with other similar malts. Red Back Wheat is a unique speciality limited release malt. Use in place of Wheat Malt noting it has NO Diastatic Power or as a added colour body and foam addition to some of your favourite "Brewing with Wheat" beer styles.
