Crystal – Same as Caramel 10L, this light Crystal malt will lend body and mouth feel with a minimum of color, but with a light caramel sweetness and mild caramel flavor. Can help prevent the formation of oxidised (cardboard) flavours.
Available in 1LB and 50LB bags.
Specialty grains are added to impart specific and desirable character to a beer. Color, malt sweetness, and aroma are but a few of the characteristics, which can be controlled and “dialed in” to suit the individual taste for a specific style of beer. Specialty grains differ from grains used as foundation or base malt in that they do not produce an appreciable quantity of fermentable sugars. What they do produce is a dextrous, unfermentable sugar that directly contributes to the body of the beer.
Trying different grains will definitely give your beer a different taste. So, if you really like one of our kits, but want to make a slight change, try adding a different grain to your next batch.
