Malts are a creamy, thick beverage made with a combination of malt powder, ice cream, and milk. Malt is an essential ingredient in many drinks, including beer and whisky. Malt gives these drinks a creamy, thick texture and a sweet, grainy flavor. It is made from grains, usually barley, that have been soaked in water and then dried. This process, known as malting, unlocks the starches in the grain that are needed to make beer or whiskey. In addition to activating the starches, the malt also creates a range of flavors, colors, and aromas in the beer or whiskey. Depending on the malt and the process used, the flavor of the beer or whiskey can range from light and floral to malty and sweet.
