    Pilsen Malt;Briess

    Subtly sweet maltiness. Characteristics & Applications: • Can be used as a base malt. • More pronounced malty flavor than 2-Row Brewers Malt. • Use with 2-Row Brewers Malt for rich malt flavor and additional color. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 2-Row Malting Barley varieties.

  • 0.81 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.
