  • .5 lbs Cara-Pils® Malt (Organic); Briess

    Cara-Pils® Malt (Organic); Briess

    USDA Organic, 100% Organic. No flavor or color. 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.

  • .25 lbs Rye (Pregelatinized Flakes); Briess

    Rye (Pregelatinized Flakes); Briess

    Characteristics & Applications: • Pregelatinized Rye Flakes have been produced specifically for brewing, developing characteristics necessary for easy and efficient use in a brewhouse. The process of gelatinizing makes the starches readily soluble and digestible by the naturally occurring enzymes in barley malt. This allows the flakes to be incorporated directly into the mash with other grains. • Because flakes have a large surface area and are pre-cooked, they hydrate and disintegrate quickly. Filtration time will be normal. • There is no need to mill Rye Flakes. However, they can be put through the mill if that is the easiest means of adding them to the mash. • Pregelatinized Rye Flakes are made from choice rye that is guaranteed ergo-free. Rye Flakes contribute a very clean, distinctive rye flavor. • Use up to 40% as a cereal adjunct in the total grist to create Rye Beer. • Start at 5-10% and increase in increments of 5% because of the concentrated flavor of Rye Flakes.
