Gladfield Shepherds Delight Malt has intense bready, toasted and kola flavour with lingering fruit sweetness.  Will give a stunning red hue to your beer.



Gladfield Shepherds Delight Malt is what we consider as stepped up version of our Aurora malt. Shepherds Delight malt has intense bready, toasted and kola flavour with a lingering fruity sweetness. This malt should be used sparingly to supercharge the maltiness of a beer and will give flavours similar to a decoction mash. Used at too high a concentration could lead to bitterness in the final beer we recommend combining Shepherds Delight with our Vienna malt to give a balancing sweetness. This malt will give a stunning red hue to your beers.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Ben Miller

    Very happy with the results from this malt. Follow Gladfields advice and you cannot go wrong.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5


    Such an interesting malt to use, you can easily identify the cola, bready, fruity flavours when chewing the grain and this is delivered rather nicely into the beer. Wort colour is striking and lends itself to a few styles where colour is a large part of the presentation of the beer. Unique, characterful and delicious – give it a go in your next beer.

    Michael Morgan

    One of the best specialty malts out there – stacks of colour, amazing depth of character; dark toffees, fruit cake, cola, nuts – similar to a dark crystal but with undertones of something like a Special B or Aromatic – truly unique & fantastic. Up to 10% provides seriously robust maltiness in Bitters, browns, red, ambers, Belgian darks; you name it!
