Base Malt
Also known as: Honey and Melanoidin Malt

Gladfield’s Aurora Malt is an aromatic malt which has been developed to produce rich bready, fruit cake aromas and imparts an orange/red colour to the brew. If you want to make that big malty, robust beer, then this is a great malt to use. The barley has undergone a long traditional germination process followed by a
carefully controlled kilning regime to create a reaction between the complex sugars and amino acids. The resulting Maillard reaction is responsible for the colour, flavour and aroma of our Aurora Malt. This malt is ideal for brewing dark ales, Belgium styles, and high alcohol beers. Crystal Malt will add sweetness to Aurora Malt and further enhance the bready and fruitcake aromas. RedBack and Shepherds Delight malts bring out the red colours of Aurora and also introduce complementary flavours to the finished beer.

Use: Aurora Malt grain adds a rich malt flavour to beers.
Rate: Up to 100%
