Dextrin Malt- Muntons 55lb Sack
Dextrin malt is carefully made to ensure that a high percentage of unfermentable sugars are retained without the malt picking up excessive color.
This makes it ideal for light beer styles where the core flavor profile will not be lost. Dextrin malt is designed to provide body and improve mouthfeel
and fullness to beers without adding caramel-like flavors often associated with darker crystal malts.
The malt still has some enzyme activity and can be included in ratios of up to 30%. At high dosage rates of 20 -30%, Dextrin malt will slightly reduce
the overall attenuation adding body, sweetness and stable haze to the beer. In modern no and low alcohol beers, it has the potential to be used in
very high dosages of 50 -75% giving the beer a solid highly flavorful base that is not as fermentable as a typical wort.
Dextrin malt shows its strength in highly attenuated beers such as Lagers, Brut IPAs, Saisons and Wild fermentations. The high percentage of
dextrins and complex sugars add a depth to these beer styles preventing them becoming too thin or too dry. Try a modest inclusion of 2-3%, and see
for yourself how it can enrich your beer.
