Briess Blonde Roastoat™ Malt 4L

We’ve got a great new addition to the Briess malt family with our new Blonde RoastOat™ Malt. These oats have been germinated before sending on to the roaster to drive some seriously oaty flavors. Clocking in at 4°L with a light roast flavor and mild sweetness that will add complexity to almost any beer style — this oat malt truly enhances mouthfeel and a toasty, oaty flavor.
