Mesquite Smoked Malt is smooth. It delivers a mellow mesquite smoke flavor without the harshness that mesquite can deliver. This smoothed out flavor is achieved through a blend of mesquite and other hardwoods. Mesquite Smoked Malt is less sweet than Cherry Wood Smoked Malt, which is described as smooth and clean with subtle fruity flavor and malty sweetness. Both malts are 5º Lovibond and 140DP.

Usage rates starting at 5% will add noticeable smoke character in Scottish Ales and Oktoberfests, pronounced smoke character in these styles at 10-20%, and pronounced smoke character in darker styles like Stout and Porter at 30-60%.
