Briess Smoked Mesquite Malt

This malt is produced using mesquite wood. It is slightly less sweet than the Briess Cherrywood Smoked Malt and will delivery a mellow mesquite smoked flavor without the harshness that mesquite can and does typically deliver. This toned-down flavor is achieved through a blend of mesquite and other hardwoods. It can be used in a variety of beer styles to develop complexity or rich, robust smoky flavor.

The result of Briess' unique malting process for their smoked malts is a unique, enzyme-active specialty malt that contributes pronounced smoke and upfront earthy mesquite flavor with some sweetness that is surprisingly smooth. It can be used ina variety of beer styles to develop complexity or rich, robust smoky flavor such as - Scottish Ales, Smoked Beer, Porters, Bamberger Beer, Rauch Bock
