Honey Malt is a unique malt produced by the Gambrinus Malting Corporation, a small malting company in Armstrong, British Columbia, Canada. It is made using a special process that develops distinctive flavors. The unique process puts Honey malt in the same family as German ‘brumalt’, and melanoidin malt. The result is an intense malt sweetness free from roasted or astringent flavors, with a characteristic honey-like flavor and golden color. It really doesn’t compare to any other malt. It’s unique qualities and sweet maltiness make it a perfect specialty malt in many styles. It can be used for up to 10% of the grist but the flavor can become assertive at higher usage rates. 20-30°L

perfect touch to a pale
I love to use this instead of crystal to get a touch of some residual sweetness without so much color in a pale or ipa.

Favorite steeping grain
Gambrinus Honey Malt is my go to malt for steeping grains when making an IPA. Goes especially well with citrusy recipes.

Pale Ale & Braggot
Love using this honey malt. Just recently used it in a Honey Rye Pale Ale and a Smoked Maple Bacon Braggot. Gives a nice honey flavor with a tiny bit of bready toastiness to it.

Great Malt, Fun Flavor
This is a great malt that provides a fun twist to your beer. The smell is just fantastic, and its a good substitute if your paranoid about infecting your brew by adding honey after flam out or in secondary.

VEry good
One of my favorite "secret" amlts to use in IPAs and Pale Ales. Ctrusy hops paired with this malt work well together. It's also good in porters, stouts, and honey amber ales. I cap it at 10% maximum.

My favorite
This is without a doubt my favorite malt. This stuff is absolutely fantastic in IPAs, and pale ales. Any hop works good with it but anything citrusy paired with this malt is a match made in heaven. It also works well when paired with any recipe with honey. Make sure to always have some onhand

For extract brewing, can this be steeped? Or should I do mini mash with base malts?
S H on Sep 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I steeped the Honey Malt with a Grain Bag in cold water and heated until 170 degrees F and then pulled the grain out. Total steeping time about 30 minutes. Used this with the Simply Beer Pale Recipe and some Centennial pellet hops to bring the Pale a little more over to the IPA side. Will do this again. The Honey Malt produces a wonderful aroma.
