Description

RedBack Malt is a unique 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. In other words the wort colour is bright with good clarity but most of all a lovely red colour. RedBack goes well with Gladfield Ale and Aurora malt which is a melanoidin malt.

    Great for red IPAs. Follow Gladfields advice for this malt and you can’t go wrong.

    Along with Shepherds Delight – this is one of my favourite malts – provides lovely pale toffee/caramel, slight fruitiness & a brilliant red hue. Amazing for red ales/lagers, also nice in browns & bitters.

    Excellent grain for my Irish IPA, gives a true red tinge at 8% of the grain bill.
    Good price too, on par with the not so local home brew shop.
