Briess Rye Malt

Rye malt is an often overlooked malt but it has a unique spicy flavor that is perfect for the production of rye beer. It can be used in a traditional rye beer or even in smaller amounts in light and medium colored and flavored beers for complexity. It can also be used in a single malt whiskey. It can help build flavor and develop complexity in many beer styles - from medium flavored lagers to dark ales. 

You should use in 5% increments until the desired flavor is achieved. It is fully modified and performs well in a single temperature infusion mash if used at less than 20% of the total grist.

It is hulless and has a high beta glucan content, which means it can result in a sticky mash and slow lautering. We highly recommend adding rice hulls when usage levels approach 20% and by also supplementing with betaglucanase enzyme above 35% for manageable lautering.
