BEST Red X® has become synonymous with beers with a reddish color. It can be used 100% of the grain bill and is thus ready for use without the addition of further malts. BEST Red X® ensures, with the highest possible process reliability and optimum processability, that reproducibly bright beers with intense red colors can be brewed. The malt was designed for a P12 beer. For stronger beers, due to the higher original wort content, some BEST Pilsener malt should be added proportionally to the bulk to get back into the red range.
For all reddish beers, ales, Alt, Dunkel and wheat beers.
