Brewers are often wary of using Chocolate Malts because they are often associated with imparting bitter, harsh and astringent flavours. These flavours are formed when the husk is burnt during the roasting process. At Gladfield Malt, we have perfected a unique process that keeps the husk moist during the roasting process which limits these bitter and astringent flavours from forming. Gladfield’s Chocolate Malts are still darker malts, but impart smooth roast flavours to the brewed beer.
