Briess CaraCrystal® Wheat malt
55Lovibond (Golden to Orange to Mahogany).
Caracrystal® Wheat Malt is a roasted caramel wheat malt processed from Wisconsin grown wheat. In contrast to Brewers Malt, glassiness is a distinguishing characteristic of caramel (crystal) malt. The glassy endosperm creates the desirable non-fermentable components giving true caramel malt the ability to contribute body (mouthfeel), foam, head retention, and extended beer stability, while contributing color and unique caramel flavor.
Recommended for all beer styles using caramel malts such as IPAs, Pale Ales, low alcohol beers, wheat beers, Bock beers, and session beers. Use in any beer style for smooth, subtle flavor.
- 5-10% Will give subtle sweetness and flavor with pale orange tones
- 10-15% Will lend mild sweetness and flavor plus orange tones
- 15-25% Gives a more pronounced flavor with dark orange to mahogany tones
