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

Used in my pale ales
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.
Gambrinus Honey Malt is my go to malt for steeping grains when making an IPA. Goes especially well with citrusy recipes.
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.
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.
