BEST Spelt Malt

BEST Spelt Malt is essential for the production of typical strong, top-fermented spelt beers and additionally improves foam and cloud stability. As an ancient grain, spelt is said to have numerous health-promoting properties, which is why it was already the favorite grain of Hildegard von Bingen, the medieval pioneer of the health movement. Since this spelt can only be grown and processed in a few regions of southern Germany, BEST Spelt Malt is a unique specialty.
For all spelt beers, for other top-fermented beers, multi-grain beers and for improving foam and haze stability.
