BEST Spelt Malt is used to make typical, strongly top-fermented spelt beers. Spelt is an ancient grain and is known to possess a number of health benefits. For this reason, spelt was the favorite grain of Hildegard von Bingen, a pioneer of today´s health movement back in the Middle Ages. Spelt beer is considered extremely digestible and conducive to good health. As spelt is only grown and processed in a few regions in Southern Germany, BEST Spelt Malt is a unique specialty.
