Biscuit™ malt produces a very pronounced “toasty” finish in the beer. Imparts a warm bread and biscuit-like aroma and flavor. Promotes a light to medium warm brown color of the mash. This malt is used to improve the roasted flavor and aroma that characterize ales and lagers lending the subtle properties of black and chocolate malts. No enzymes. Must be mashed with malts having a surplus of diastatic power.
Suitable for any style, especially English ales, brown ales and porters. Up to 15% of the mix.
Black Malt has a sharper flavor than other roasted grains. A dark malt for use in Porters and the occasional Stout. Often used to provide color without overpowering flavor that is characteristic of European-style dark beers. Enhances the aroma of character beers by producing a more astringent flavor than other colored malts. Imparts a slight burnt or smoky flavor.
Suitable for darker beer. 3-6% of the mix.
CARAAROMA® is a drum-roasted caramel malt made from two-row, German barley. CARAROMA® delivers notes of roasted nuts, dark caramel, dried fruit while imparting deep amber and red hues to the finished beer. CARAAROMA® can also be used to add body to the beer. Great for Amber Ales and Lagers, Stouts, Porters, Bocks and Dunkel Lager.
CARAMUNICH® Type 1 is a drum-roasted caramel malt made from two-row, German barley. It contributes dark amber to copper hues, and adds a rich malt accent with notes of biscuit and an intense caramel aroma. CARAMUNICH® Type 1 also add body and improve head retention. Suitable for use in all lager and ale styles of beer.
Carapils adds body, mouthfeel and improves head retention by adding dextrines, proteins, non-starch polysaccharides, and other body-building compounds into your wort. Carapils is usually used at a level of 5% or less of your total all-grain malt bill. However it can be used at a higher rate in special cases, say if you are making a Session IPA, and are trying to simulate a higher gravity beer. Because of its extremely light color and neutral flavor it won’t have much affect on the final color or flavor of your beer.
Cara Red malt imparts a rich caramel-sweet aroma and a toffee-like flavor, adding light amber to reddish color to beer. A distinguishing characteristic of all caramel malts is glassiness. This glassy endosperm creates the desirable non-fermentable components that give true caramel malt the ability to contribute mouthfeel, head retention, and extended beer stability.
Suitable in brown Ales, Brune des Flandres, Bocks, and Scottish Ales. Up to 20% of the mix.
