Briess Malts & Ingredients announced that another of its seasonal malts is being added to its standard malt portfolio. Carabrown Malt was introduced several years ago as a Maltster’s Reserve Malt available for a limited time each year. Carabrown is a versatile malt because of its flavor profile and relatively light color for a drum roasted malt, and because of its versatility, Briess is making it available year round for your formulating, production and ordering flexibility.
“If you’ve already brewed with it, you’re familiar with its exceptionally smooth, clean taste,” Briess noted in its blog. “It begins with a slightly malty flavor then delivers a range of lightly toasted, biscuity, nutty, graham cracker flavors. It finishes somewhat dry and, at 55º L, contributes nice light brown to orange hues.
“Start using it in the 5%-25% range, depending upon the style you’re brewing. It’s especially good in brown ales, porters and stouts, and is also good in bitter, pale mild and Belgian Ales, wheat beers, bock Oktoberfest and Scotch Ales for flavor, complexity and color.”
