This malt is created from lightly toasted, whole buckwheat ready to add a rustic character to your ferments. Buckwheat has been researched for its possible caprylic acid contribution to Brettanomyces fermentation resulting in tropical like esters from the break down of its fatty acids. We sell this malt with hull on to give your mash more lauter filter material without color contribution. Buckwheat is a pseudo-cereal and has extract levels similar to other base malts, so it can be used as a gluten-free alternative.
