Updated Briess COVID-19 statement

Roasted Caramel Malts

Briess Caramel Malts are produced in drum roasters that have been custom designed and engineered specifically for roasting malt and barley. This custom engineering allows for the application of significantly higher temperatures to green malt, which is a must for the caramelization of sugars, uniform temperature application to all kernels, and precise control of airflow and moisture. Full, caramel flavors and aromas are not achievable with kilning. Drum roasters also produce more uniform and consistent results within each batch and from lot to lot—a mark of quality that Briess customers have come to expect.

Caracrystal® Wheat Malt

Sweet, smooth, malty, bready, subtle caramel, dark toast, exceptionally clean finish

This wheat malt is recommended for all beer styles that use caramel malts such as IPAs, Pale Ales, low alcohol beers, wheat beers, Bock beers, and session beers where a touch of subtle caramel plus smooth dark toast flavor is beneficial. You can use in any beer style to add sweetness and develop smooth or complex flavors. This malt also works great for improved body, foam and foam retention, flavor, and color.
