In advance of its official release later this summer, Briess Caramel Rye Malt is being featured in two special beers at the Briess-Hopunion beer station in booth No. 1124. Damn Rye’t is a double IPA brewed by Denver Beer Co., and Donkey Tail is a rye pale ale brewed by Oskar Blues.
Briess Caramel Rye Malt will be released at 60º L. Like other Briess caramel (crystal) malts, Caramel Rye is drum roasted in small batches from germinated, wet grain until the starchy center is crystallized. The process tames the characteristic spicy rye flavor and develops some sweetness with upfront roasted, malty flavors and an array of subtle but complex bready, caramel, earthy, rye and dry background notes.
Briess recommends using 1-10 percent for varying degrees of flavor and complexity in any style of beer, or use with Rye Malt for both spicy rye and complex flavors. Caramel Rey Malt delivers light amber to reddish hues and enhances mouth-feel when used at higher amounts.
Visit Briess in Booth No. 1120 to pick up or request a sample of Caramel Rye Malt, and to learn more about the entire portfolio of Briess handcrafted specialty malts.
