    Floor-Malted Bohemian Pilsner Malt; Weyermann

    Czech-grown two-row spring barley. Traditional, authentic floor malt produced in Czech. Republic according to highest Weyermann® quality standards. Up to 100% of total grain bill. All lagers (especially Czech. Pils/Pilsner/Pilsener) as well as low-alcohol, “light”, and ales.

  • .5 lbs Caramel Malt 20L; Briess

    Caramel Malt 20L; Briess

    Candylike sweetness, mild caramel flavor. 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. • Caramel 20L is a roasted caramel malt that imparts golden 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 6-Row Malting Barley varieties.

  • .5 lbs Cara-Pils® Malt; Briess

    Cara-Pils® Malt; Briess

    Characteristics & Applications: • The endosperm is completely glassy and will appear to be darker than standard Brewers Malt. • Carapils® is a very unique dextrine-style malt that adds body, foam retention, and beer stability without influencing color or flavor. • Use to upgrade all types of beer, including light colored beers. • The non-fermentables in Carapils® are very advantageous in balancing body and flavor of dark colored beers. • May be used with or without other specialty malts. • Low usage of 1-5% will help achieve desired results. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 2-Row Malting Barley varieties.
