Weyermann Munich Type 1 Malt, formerly “Light Munich”.  Unmilled Malt for Brewing Beer.  Used for enhanced dark beer body and a malty, toasted aroma.  Weyermann® Munich Type 1 malt (‘Light Munich’) is a kilned lager-style malt made from quality, two-row, German spring barley. Usually considered and used as a  specialty malt, it has a high enzyme content despite its color, and can constitute up to 100% of the grist. It produces robust malt characteristics, including full body, amber color, and smooth mouthfeel. 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 Märzen.

Famous for roasted malts, the Weyermann family traces its roots back to 1510 and has been in the grain business since 1871. The trademarks Carapils® and Caramünch® were registered around 1908. During WW2 the Potsdam portion of Weyermann was destroyed by bombs and the subsequent Russian occupation. All their East German business was lost as well as their equipment.

All the Weyermann family survived the war except one brother lost on the Eastern Front. After the war, Rudolf and Carl Weyermann in West Germany were suspended from the Company due to de-Nazification. Today, Weyermann is a team of 240 highly motivated and well-trained staff members who ensure that you will always receive nothing but true Weyermann quality. Sixty staff members hold diplomas or advanced degrees as professional brewers, maltsters, brew masters or brew engineers. Weyermann produces over 80 different types of malts that are distributed to 135 different countries
