Rahr GN Zero Malt
Rahr GN Zero Malt is a premium distilling malt composed of Glycosidic Nitrile-free North American 2-Row barley.
Rahr GN Zero’s technical specifications and flavor profile make it an excellent neutral base malt for any whiskey or spirit where you may want to use a barley malt. Ideal for a bourbon or American Single Malt Whiskey, it provides earthy and grainy characteristics while slight notes of bread crumb and sprouts play a supporting role.
What is Glycosidic Nitrile (GN)?
Glycosidic nitriles are organic compounds found in high volumes in some barley varieties once malted. Ethyl carbamate (EC), a carcinogen, is formed from GM during distilling. Many countries regulate EC levels, and the US may tighten regulations, making this a future-proof choice for your aging spirits.
