Weyermann Munich Type 1 malt , or light munich, is a kilned lager-style malt made from quality, two-row, German spring barley. Usually used as a specialty malt, it has a high enzyme content and can constitute up to 100% of the grist. It produces robust malt characteristics, including full body, amber color, and smooth mouth-feel. The flavor is strongly malty and the rich aroma has notes of light caramel, honey, and bread. Munich malt is typically used in dark lagers and ales, especially Munich-style lagers, various bock styles, and German festival beers like Märzenbier, Festbier, and Oktoberfest.
