Sugar Creek Pre Prohibition malt is a malt that is slightly darker than standard base malt, registering 5 to 8 on the Lovibond scale. Made from a 6-row variety of malt known as Thoroughbred, its darker color means it has been toasted slightly longer than standard base malt to give it a richer flavor. It contributes strong nut and toast flavors to beer. It works well in a range of beers, most notably pre-prohibition style ales and lagers, especially dark lagers. It can be used for up to 100% of the base in beers where it is utilized. A unique malt with very few modern equivalents, give this malt a try next time you want to make a pre-prohibition style beer!
