  • 13.625 lbs 2-Row Brewers Malt; Briess

    2-Row Brewers Malt; Briess

    Mild malty flavor. Characteristics & Applications: • Base malt for all beer styles • Smoother, less grainy flavor than 6-Row Brewers Malt. • Slightly higher yield than 6-Row Brewers Malt. • Slight lower protein than 6-Row Brewers Malt. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 2-Row Malting Barley varieties.

    2-Row Caramel Malt 80L; Briess

    Pronounced Caramel, Slight Burnt Sugar, Raisiny, Prune. 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. • 2-Row Caramel Malt 80L is a roasted caramel malt that imparts red to deep red color. • Use 3-15% in Amber and Red beers. • Use 10-15% in Bock beers. • Use 7-15% in Dark beers. • Use 10-15% in Porter and Stout. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 2-Row Malting Barley varieties.

  • .325 lbs Smoked Malt; Best Malz

    Smoked Malt; Best Malz

    BEST Smoked Malt gives beer a typical smoky taste (similar to that in smoked ham). The quantity used will influence the intensity of the taste of beech wood or whiskey. This malt can also be used for distillates. It has a high enzymatic power.
