Saltine taste

Adds the taste of saltines (without the salt of course) and is appropriate in different English style beers, from porters to milds, or ESBs. I use between 4 and 12 ounces of the special roast because it has a strong flavor.

Sourdough... big time!

So I recently used this malt for the first time - only 0.25 lbs in a stout I brewed and WOW. If you like sourdough bread and biscuity-toasty flavors in your beer, this is 100% the way to go. It only made up about 2% of my grain bill and contributed a huge amount of character to the finished beer. I would use very sparingly if you're not into that blast of flavor, but otherwise if that's what you're going for you won't be disappointed.
