Shepherds Delight is a unique malt made by Gladfield Malt. Shepherds Delight Malt has a concentrated or intense deeper flavour than our Aurora Malt. It will provide a potent bready, toasted, cola flavour with a lingering fruity sweetness and red hue to the brewed beer. This malt should be used sparingly because it gives a powerful malt flavour to the beer similar to a decoction mash. Using too high a concentration of this malt could lead to bitterness in the final beer.
We recommend combining Shepherds Delight Malt with our Vienna Malt to give a balancing sweetness.
Beers made with Shepherds Delight favour from allowing to age for few weeks so flavour mellows out.
