Ingredients / Meussdoerffer Melanoidin
« on: February 24, 2015, 11:22:55 AM »
Anyone use this before?

Meussdoerffer Melanoidin, Germany -Cargill
This kilned malt, similar to a dark aromatic Munich, improves flavor and fullness. Meussdoerffer Melanoidin malt imparts a reddish color to dark, amber, and red colored beers.
Ideal for: Amber beers, ales, stouts, bock
30-40 L

looks to be a bit more robust then the 23-31 L weyermann I have used. just bought 10lbs and plan on trying it out next brew.
