    2-Row Caramel Malt 40L; Briess

    Sweet, Caramel, Toffee. S Characteristics & Applications: • In contrast to Brewers Malt, glassiness is a distinguishing characteristic of Caramel Malt. The glassy endosperm creates the desirable non-fermentable components giving true Caramel Malt the ability to contribute body (mouthfeel), foam foam retention, and extended beer stability, while contributing color and unique caramel flavor. • 2-Row Caramel Malt 40L is a roasted caramel malt that imparts golden to light red color. • Use 3-7% for Pilsener-style beers for balance. • Use 5-15% to provide color, sweetness and color to light amber beers. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 2-Row Malting Barley varieties.

  • 1 tsp Irish Moss - 15 min (omitted from calculations)

    Irish Moss

    A dried red-brown marine algae. Fining agent to remove large proteins. Negatively charged polymer attracts positively charged protein-tannin complexes (extracted from grain husks and hops) during the boil. This action is aided by the clumping of proteins in the boiling process. Irish moss settles to the bottom of the brew kettle with spent hops and hot break material at the end of the boil.

In the Primary - I am looking forward to my gamble of additional hops to balance out the sweetness I expect - we will see.

We ... half through the Keg and things are real tasty. Can't complain about this one. Tried to overcome too much sweetness with hops and it did work. Next batch though .... Dial back the bittering hops to 1oz and the CaraRed to .20 LBS but definitely keep it. The sweetness was there however not overwhelming - I would call it next to great....!! A keeper.
