    Crystal Malt 10°L

    Sweet, mild caramel flavor and a golden color. Use in light lagers and light ales. Characteristics & Applications: • In contract 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.

This is a great IPA

This beer was tranferred to secondary and dry hopped on 3/22/09. The aroma and flavor is hard to believe. I used the recipe from BYO except that I used Cry Havoc yeast. The sample that I tasted when I did a gravity check was virtually identical to the commercial version.

Great to hear

This was actually something I wanted to try after seeing the write-up in BYO. Glad someone posted about it. Thanks.

4/6/2009 Kegged and carbonated this one. It's still young but it tastes exactly like the commercial version. Fermentation temp is important--keep it around 60 degrees. Dry hopped for 10 days.

An exact clone

Don't plan on having a pint or two and then enjoying a delicately flavored dinner. All you will taste is the brew.

The best

Recently tasted this one against the Stone version and they are identical.

Started another batch

Went to the laager for a pint and all I got was CO2. Damn. Now I have to brew more--but a double batch this time.

Stone uses columbus and centennial for hops in ruination.

Brewing is an art, not an exact science. This beer was evealuated by five BJCP certified judges and deemed to be an exact copy of the commercial version.
