DetailsHoney 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

5.0 / 5.06 ReviewsMy favoriteThis 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 onhandFebruary 2, 2014perfect touch to a paleI love to use this instead of crystal to get a touch of some residual sweetness without so much color in a pale or ipa.July 26, 2018Purchased
1 month agoPale Ale & BraggotLove 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.January 18, 2016VEry goodOne 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.February 12, 2014Favorite steeping grainGambrinus Honey Malt is my go to malt for steeping grains when making an IPA.

Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 3 answersFor extract brewing, can this be steeped? Or should I do mini mash with base malts?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.How many ppg can I expect when mashing gambrinus honey malt?BEST ANSWER: Around 28 ppg based on 75% efficiency. Note that it is not a base malt.
