    Pronounced Caramel, Slight Burnt Sugar, Raisiny, Prune. 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 80L is a roasted caramel malt that imparts red to deep red color. • Use 3-15% in Amber and Red beers. • Use 10-15% in Bock beers. • Use 7-15% in Dark beers. • Use 10-15% in Porter and Stout. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 2-Row Malting Barley varieties.

    Smoked Malt; Best Malz

    BEST Smoked Malt gives beer a typical smoky taste (similar to that in smoked ham). The quantity used will influence the intensity of the taste of beech wood or whiskey. This malt can also be used for distillates. It has a high enzymatic power.

    Roasted malts for ‘winter warmer’ styles. Rich, dark colours with burnt toast dryness.
