Product Description

SPECIALTY GRAINS

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.

 

CHOCOLATE MALT

We are proud to carry products from Briess Malt and Ingredient Co, in Chilton Wisconsin. Their chocolate malt provides the dark flavors of roasted coffee and cocoa. Try it in browns, stouts, or porters for a hint of bittersweet chocolate. 350°L

MUNICH MALT

Produced in the traditional European manner of ‘stewing’ germination then kilning at high temperatures.  Emphasis on higher-protein 2-Row barleys, to achieve high levels of protein solubilization and colour formation. Munich Malt can be used as a base malt for Bock Beer and Doppelbock. Used in smaller quantities in Dunkel Lagers, IPAs, Ambers, and wherever increased malt flavour and aromas are desired, but without introducing caramel/crystal flavours. Can be used at 20%-70% percent of the grist.

Available in 1LB and 50LB bags.

Grainy taste and significantly increased head retention, creaminess, and body. Can make up to 20% of grist for classic dry Irish stouts.

 

FLAKED CORN

Lightens body and color. For light American pilsners and ales.

Flaked Maize often called flaked corn adds mild, neutral flavor in small amounts, moderate sweetness at higher percentages. Low rates sometimes used in English bitters. Can make up to 40% of grist for American lager styles.

 

CRYSTAL MALT

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. Briess caramel malts are produced in a roaster rather than a kiln. This allows for the application of higher temperatures to the green malt, resulting in the development of unique flavors, colors, and aromas. This light caramel malt produces light golden hues, and has a mellow, candy like sweetness and a subtle toffee flavor – similar to spun sugar. It will contribute more flavor than a carapils, but not as much as darker caramel malts. Use 3-15% for enhanced body and foam stability with a subtle color and flavor contribution. 10°L

CRYSTAL MALT 40L

Briess caramel malts are produced in a roaster rather than a kiln. This allows for the application of higher temperatures to the green malt, resulting in the development of unique flavors, colors, and aromas. Caramel 40L is a popular and verstaile medium caramel malt that will contribute rich golden hues and smooth flavors of sweet toffee and caramel. Use 3-15% in many beer styles to enhance the body, foam stability, color, and flavor of your beer. 40°L

Briess caramel malts are produced in a roaster rather than a kiln. This allows for the application of higher temperatures to the green malt, resulting in the development of unique flavors, colors, and aromas.

FLAKED WHEAT

Imparts a wheat flavor, hazy color. For wheat and Belgian white beers.

Greatly increases head retention and body at as low as 8% of the grist; can make up to 40% of grist.

 

ROASTED BARLEY MALT

These highly roasted malts contribute a coffee or burnt toast flavor to porters and stouts. Obviously these malts should be used in moderation. Some brewers recommend that they be added towards the end of the mash, claiming that this reduces the “acrid bite” that these malts can contribute. This practice does seem to produce a smoother beer for people brewing with “soft” or low bicarbonate water.

VIENNA MALT

Produced from full steeping and germination with a higher kilning temperature to achieve colour. Vienna malt can be used as a base malt to give increased malt aroma and flavour. Traditionally used in Vienna Lager and Märzens. Excellent in IPA and American Wheat Ale, where a golden maltiness is desired but crystal sweetness is not. Normally used at 10%-15% of the grist.

MARIS OTTER MALT

Finest malts from the British Isles. Maris Otter is an English 2-row varietal barley introduced in 1966 that was developed specifically to produce high quality malt for the production of ale.

Its low nitrogen content, uniformly plump kernels, and robust husk has made it a favorite among English brewers for its reliable and forgiving brewhouse performance, and, most notably, because of the unique Maris Otter flavor it adds to the beer which may be absent in modern barley varieties grown for yield and ease of agricultural production.

This fine base malt will easily convert with a single infusion mash, and produce an orange tinged golden wort with a unique rich, slightly nutty flavor. An excellent malt for any English style beer. 3.5-4.5°L
