Usage: All beer types. Can be used up to 100% or as part of the mixture. Characteristics: The lightest in colour and low in protein, this malt is well modified and can be easily mashed with a single-temperature infusion.

    Features: Unique and very special Belgian malt. Lightly kilned, then lightly torrefied up to 160°C. Usage: All special beers and as well for English ales, brown ales and porters. Recommended proportion: up to 15% of the grist. Characteristics: Biscuit malt produces a very pronounced "toasty" finish in the beer. Imparts a warm bread and biscuit like aroma and flavour. Biscuit Malt promotes a light to medium warm brown colour to the mash. This malt is used to improve the roasted flavour 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.
