Amazing, magical stuff!Nov 13, 2012
By R. Butarbutar
I've been baking on and off for about 4 years now and have always been disappointed that I could neither get the smell nor the rise (oven spring) of a professional bakery. After recently deciding to use diastatic malt powder(around 1/2 to 1 tsp per loaf) and Peter Reinhart's cold-temp rise method, I finally made the most delicious bread I have ever made. My house smelled exactly like my favorite bakery in Berkeley!
Be careful about a couple of things...
1) more than 1 tsp per loaf, then you run the risk of having gummy-textured bread
2) most commercial bread flour already have malted barley flour added
3) DIASTATIC and NON-DIASTATIC are completely different. The latter is used only as a flavoring/sweetener; it really doesn't change the behavior of your dough

Skeptical, But Really Seems to Make a DifferenceApr 24, 2011
By S. WIlliams
After reading some positive reviews and recommendations from places like King Arthur Flour, I decided to give this bread add-in a try. I was skeptical a tablespoon or too would make a difference in my bread but it does seem to increase shelf life and slightly soften texture of all the loaves and rolls I've tried it with so far (sourdough, sweet rolls, dinner rolls). There is no distinct taste difference but the dough gets (much) easier to work with after the addition and it even seems to boost the rise a bit.
Not an essential bread-making tool, but if you make from-scratch loaves a few times a week, like I do, a tiny, yet worthwhile investment and great addition to your pantry. A pretty good, overall "secret" ingredient.

Excellent productMay 28, 2010
By Donald W. Eckard
I have already made several products; Baguettes, Bagels, Balysee, and I even used this malt into my donuts. Excellent flavor and this malt was easy to use in place of malt syrup (just use 85% of the dry malt of the total syrup needed).
I will be back to purchase more of this product in the future.

ExcellentApr 28, 2010
First of all, the malt arrived super fast via priority mail, which I didn't expect and was very pleased by.
The product was well packaged and fresh. It worked wonderfully, and I could see the difference between the focaccia I made using it and the one without.
I highly recommend this product and the seller as well!
