Caramel (Crystal) Malt 40°L: Briess / 1 lb.

Current stock: 0
[GN241] Also refered to a "Pale Crystal," this 40°L version of caramel malt is one of the more popular roasts. It is used in a burage of homebrew recipes. Most of them are European-style ales from pale to brown, but you can also see Caramel 40°L in full-bodied lagers such as Marzen or Octoberfest. This malted barley gives a unique malty impression to the homebrew that is followed with a caramel to toffee sweetness. These well-balanced flavors can partially be attributable to the crystallization of the malt's sugars during the roasting process. Depending on how much Caramel 40°L you used in your homebrew recipe, it can add colors from golden to red.
