Chit Malt

Also known as: Pointed Malt

Adjunct Malt


Chit Malt, an adjunct malt that features a light color, is extensively utilized in the brewing process of diverse beer styles, especially German lagers, Belgian beers, and some ale styles. It imparts a very mild malty flavor while not significantly influencing the color of the beer, making it a versatile ingredient in numerous recipes.

Its uniqueness resides in its ability to enhance foam stability and body, without overpowering the original flavor profile of the beer. The flavor contribution from Chit Malt is notably subtle, with light grainy hints, while leaving room for other specialty malts and hops to dictate the primary taste. Brewers prize it for its ability to lend a slightly enhanced malt complexity and improved mouthfeel to the final product.
