Sugar Creek Rye Malt is a delicious rye malt that can impart a signature spiciness to beers. This spice character is present in the nose and comes across on the palate when drinking. It is described as having slight honey notes as well, with a pumpernickel breadiness and earthy character. It can lend a bit of dryness to beers, and thus goes well in pale ales and IPAs! Sugar Creek Rye Malt is a superior rye malt and can have a number of uses in your brewing!
