Adding malt drink for flavour

I've been having some really nice breads with a good malty flavour by adding this drink that I found in Tesco's in the UK.  I just add around 50mls in with my preferment instead of some of the water.  Just thought I would share.

Thanks for sharing. I live in the USA and don’t think the malt is available. Otherwise I’d surely give it a try.

Is the flavor of the malt very noticeable in the bread? I use brewer’s malted barley grain, and I like the flavor and coloring that it provides.

of your supermarket, you'll probably find a Goya malt beverage called "Malta".  :-)
