Because Briess has ceased making 6-row, we have transitioned to both Canada Malting and Rahr 6-row malt. If you have a preference, please call us before placing your order!
The enzymes are sufficient to support high percentages of specialty malts in the mash. Flavor contributions: mild, grainy, malty.
6-row barley has a much higher protein content and enzymatic power than 2-row barley. Inclusion of Standard 6-Row is therefore very advantageous for recipes calling for large proportions of specialty malts, wheat malts, or adjuncts, which have little or no enzymatic power themselves. 6-row barley is also used to match historical beer styles from settings where 2-row barley was not widely available. High proportions of 6-row barley may necessitate the use of adjuncts or require protein rests in mashing.
