Munich Malt

Munich Malt

Munich Malt was developed in the late 1830s by Gabriel Sedlmayr, a young innovative brewer from the family-owned Spaten Brewery. His revolutionary malt, darker than Vienna malt, quickly found fame in local Dunkel and Märzen style beers.

Munich malt is gently kilned, carefully reducing the moisture while preserving enzymatic potential. A final cure at a higher temperature rapidly drives off further moisture while achieving the desired colour. The combination of slow drying and rapid finishing yields the classic Munich Malt flavour profile. At a low inclusion, Munich Malt delivers a light golden copper colour to finished beer, higher inclusions lead to deep bold amber shades. An elegant malt, sweet up front, smooth and satisfying on the palate, supported by a pleasant bread crust maltiness and lingering nut character. 

A versatile speciality malt, refined in character yet powerful and rich when it makes up the majority of the grist. A key ingredient in regional lagers, Bocks, Dopplebocks, Porters, Bavarian Dunkels, Märzens, and special Oktoberfest beers.
