Augments lagers with extra aroma and color
Sometimes I do a decoction mash when I make lagers but usually not. Then I add 8-12 ounces of Melanoidin malt to add aroma, color, body and flavor. It's strong so don't go adding more than a pound unless you know what to expect.

Fabulous in lagers
I use a half pount of this Melanoidin instead of perfoming a decoction mash. It adds a fabulous aroma and the taste is what I was expecting. It darkens the beer a little too.

Can this be steeped or does it require a mash?
A shopper on Dec 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I assume you are not doing an all grain bill but are mostly brewing with LME or DME. If so and if you just want the beautiful red tinge that Melanoidin adds go ahead and steep. But if you want want the contribution towards smooth mouth feel, compact head retention and more alcohol, you'll crush and mash. ~ Crownie
