Gladfield Munich malt is rich, sweet, toasty and biscuity with a touch of breadiness.  Ideal for darker style Lagers or Ales and high alcohol beers. Munich malt is a popular addition in lower percentages to APAs and IPAs for malt character.



Gladfield Munich malt is germinated similar to the Vienna malt using slightly higher nitrogen barley to create more intense colour through greater maillard reactions.

This is achieved by allowing higher levels of moist air recirculation and low temperatures to occur during the early and intermediate stages of the kilning cycle.

This kilning cycle results in a malt which is rich, sweet, toasty and imparts a biscuit flavour with a touch of breadiness.

Gladfield Munich Malt imparts a deep orange colour and a malty, toasted, nutty, grainy flavour to the brewed beer.

Typical Uses & Styles:

  • Bavarian Lager
  • Bavarian Dunkel
  • Doppelbock
  • Marzenbier
  • Pale Ale
  • IPA

Usage Rate Guidance:

Up to 100% of the grist.

Use your brewers discretion, we find 10-15% in a Pale Ale or IPA is great but you can go as high as 30% in a Marzenbier and higher again in Dunkels and Bocks where Munich can form the majority of the grist and the intent is to create more malt character in your beer.

    Gladfield Munich is a great addition to the APAs and IPAs that I regularly brew. The 5kg bags are fantastic as they are great value and the perfect size so that I can maintain a good turnover of base malt and specialty malts and brew with fresh premium Gladfield malts
