Canada Malting Rye can be used to improve head retention, improve mouthfeel and introduce flavor changes of a bready, toffee/caramel note at lower inclusion rates and a spicyness at higher inclusion rates. Most notably, rye malt will also impart a reddish hue to beverages.

It is important to note that rye is higher in protein and beta-glucans than barley, so rice hulls are recommend to avoid stuck mashes, this becomes especially important when using >10% in the mash.
