This malt is lightly peated and is primarily used to enhance flavor in Scottish-type ales. While the malt is in the kiln, peat moss outside the kiln is smoked over slow burning coals. The smoke is allowed to drift above the malt, providing the unique smoked peat aroma and flavor. Peated malt is also used in the production of some of Scotland's fine scotches. Usage rate is 1-10% of the total grain bill. The rule is to use sparingly because the flavor of peated malt can easily take over.
