Dark Roasted Malts


Briess - divider line


Experienced Briess roaster operators produce some of the darkest colored, richest flavored malts for your brewing flexibility and creativity..

 

The intense cocoa, rich roasted coffee and roasted flavors are a necessity for Porters and Stouts. Use in smaller quantities for a touch of flavor or color adjustment in all beer styles. Or replace debittered black malt with Blackprinz® Malt or Midnight Wheat Malt. It's husk that develops bitter notes during roasting, which means that debittered black malts will contribute a certain amount of bitter, astringent or dry flavors or aftertaste to beer. Blackprinz® and Midnight Wheat Malts are made from grains with no husk so they contribute deep rich browns to black tones with subtle, smooth flavor and no bitterness or astringency.
