Crystal malts

Inserting unique malt flavors, colors and aromas

Looking to introduce the distinctive raisin-like flavor of some Belgian abbey ales? Or to generate a deep golden brown color for your American pale ale? Whatever beer style you are crafting, our crystal malts add that “something special”. Made from green malt that is roasted to varying degrees, they contribute to the flavor, color, head-retention and storage capabilities of your beer. Explore a range of different colors, from a light honey to darker brown, as well as flavor profiles from sweet to dry.

Dingemans Cara 8

Dingemans Cara 8 is a very light crystal malt made by drying barley malt at low temperatures. The result is a malt that will lend body, smoother mouthfeel, and foam stability. This malt must be mashed with other kilned malts due to the lack of enzymes.

Pauls Caramalt

Pauls Caramalt

Pauls Caramalt is produced much the same way as Pauls Crystal except that the final roast stage is extended at lower temperatures. The result is a malt that is lower in color, higher in extract, and higher in moisture. Best used in beers where sweetness is less important, but color enhancement and "dry" flavor is required.
