A Riverbend original! Notes of caramel and toasted bread are prominently featured in this product. We’ve developed the color and aroma of this malt to perform like a light Munich/Vienna style malt. This versatile malt packs enough diastastic power to perform as a base malt in a Belgian Dubbel recipe or can be used at lower percentages in an Ordinary Bitter.

Appalachian Wet Wheat

This malt uses a new regionally adapted variety of soft red wheat called Oakes.  This variety was developed for use in the artisan bread industry, but we’ve found it makes a great malting variety as well! The aroma and flavor are more pronounced than traditional wheats, while still promoting head retention and body in the finished beer. Try it in your favorite hefeweizen or saison recipe.

Carolina Rye

This malt is produced using an heirloom variety called Wrens Abruzzi that has been grown in the south for over 200 years. Look for classic blend herbal spice, black peppercorn, and citrus flavor. Try it in a saison, pale ale, or whiskey recipe for an added punch of flavor!
