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.
