Because of some positive feedback regarding Swaen malts in a recent thread ( https://www.beeradvocate.com/community/threads/pilsner-malt.527332/page-2 ) I decided to purchase a sack of Swaen Light Munich a few months ago. This thread is being done as a warning to others thinking of buying the product. I will shortly be emailing the retailer and LC Carlson. So, sack of grain is labeled as intended... I first used this malt on August 30 in a beer intended to be a fest beer. 80% pils and 20% light munich. The color of the grain immediately grabbed my attention. I knew immediately this was not light munich. I wondered if it was their dark munich, but the grain is very dark, even for a dark munich. I proceeded with brew day, expecting to now get a marzen instead of a fest bier. The wort color confirmed my suspicion. Now that the beer is ready, I am highly unhappy. This is not dark munich. No dark toast flavors. It has a dark fruit aspect to it similar to a dark crystal or special b. The color is an orange-red too, which I would not expect from a dark munich. It's a drinkable beer, if blindfolded I would call it an amber ale or lager, but nowhere close to the oktoberfest I was expecting. Sadly, I used this malt for another brew before knowing the results. I'll be drinking amber lager for awhile, crossing my fingers for some satisfaction for my wasted money and efforts. I also bought a sack of Swaen Pilsner when I purchased the light munich, which I have not got into yet. Hopefully I will not be burned twice. Tagging @plaztikjezuz who has had good success with some of their malts.
