This is a drum roasted crystallized malt that improves foam, enhances viscosity, and contributes golden hues with a candy-like sweetness. Our Caramel Malts are roaster produced, making them the fullest flavored and best-performing Caramel Malts.
Briess 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 maximum 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.
**Pilsners, Dark Lagers, Pale Ales, Bitter IPA's, Porter and Stouts.
Recommended Usage: 3-7% For balance in Pilsners 5-10% Lagers ranging from California Common, Vienna, Bock to Dark Lagers 5-15% Variety of ales including Pale Ales and bitter IPAs, through dark ales like Porters and Stouts
