    Golden color and a candy like sweetness. 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 10L 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 2-Row Malting Barley varieties.

Just wrapping up brewing this delicious wheat beer. OG 1.052 at 5.5 gallons. Pitch wlp320 at 70F. Can’t wait to get this in blueberries fresh picked at our local blueberry patch. I will purée 6 lb with a couple ounces of Tito’s and pitch just before end of fermentation.

Today I am adding my fresh picked berries to the primary. Fermentation has slowed and ready for the fruit addition. I will purge with CO2 and install a blowoff tube.
