MaltGems™ — Heart of the Malt for Clean Flavor
MaltGems™ is crafted by removing the majority of husk, fine grit, and flour from our milled Synergy Select Pilsen Malt. What remains is the Heart of the Malt that can be lautered like a traditional brewer’s grind to deliver exceptional performance. This innovative product reveals true malt flavors without bitter, astringent qualities present with other malts, which is only possible through elimination of husk-based polyphenols. Synergy Select Pilsen Malt is a true European-style Pilsen Malt — rich in flavor, high in extract, and low in protein with moderate enzymes and FAN. Expect balanced taste with notes of bread, cracker, and honey — along with a remarkably clean finish.

Sensory Characteristics Color: Contributes light golden color to wort Flavor: Notes of bread, cracker, and honey.
