Malt Profile: Abbey Malt

Weyermann’s Abbey Malt has a Lovibond range of 16 to 19. It’s described as having a pronounced malty character with tones of honey and nuts. It has a sweet aroma, reminiscent of  freshly baked bread. With less intensity than Honey Malt and more aromatics than a Biscuit Malt, Abbey could be the solution to that “extra something” you were looking for in your IPA.

Recommended usage rate is up to 50% of the grain bill but should be noticeable at 10%. This malt is commonly used in Abbey/Trappist beers as well as other Belgian styles.
