Caramel 20L Malt

Description

Caramel 20L Malt is a premium grain malt, perfect for adding color and flavor to beer and distilled beverages. It is highly fermentable, making it an ideal choice for adding complexity and body to lighter beers. With 20L of color, it offers subtle notes of caramel and toffee and adds depth and character to your brew.

Caramel 20L is a light crystal malt made with 6-row barley. It imparts a golden color, candy-like sweetness, and mild caramel flavor. Crystal malts also add body and improve head retention. Usage is progressive, starting light to balance pilsners and reaching the maxiumum 15% to impart color and sweetness to darker ales, stouts, and porters. Crystal malts are gently cooked during the malting process. Cooking initiates the enzymatic conversion of starches into fermentable sugars, and caramelizes some of the sugars as the malt reaches its final color. This eliminates the need to mash crystal malt, and ensures that some of the sugars will survive fermentation to sweeten the beer. Briess caramel malts are roaster produced to create glassy, crystallized sugars with rich flavor and color.
