The Redback Malt is a unique malt made by Gladfield. It is prepared by a special process before going into the roaster. It is then roasted in a particular way to create certain Maillard reactions which causes the malt to produce a lovely red hue in the resulting beer without the opalescence that can occur with other similar malts. In other words the wort colour is bright with good clarity but most of all a lovely red colour. It goes well with Gladfield Pale Ale and Aurora malts which is a melanoidin malt.
Available uncrushed or crushed in-house on request.
