Brew for Africa Black Patent Malt 500-600°L (1kg)
Brew for Africa Black Patent Malt 500-600°L (1kg)
Art. nr. B01041
Product Description
A deep, dark, fully roasted malt that, if used properly, can lend a very dark colour and intense toasted flavour to dark beer styles such as stouts and Schwarzbier, and can be used to limit the sweetness of other styles that contain a lot of crystal malt. Typically imparts a highly roasted flavor, as well as some bitterness and acidity, and gives deep contrast to a round malty beer. Use sparingly! If used in excess, black malt can lend a very sharp, acrid, burnt (sometimes even ashy) flavour with a harshness far beyond that of both chocolate malt and roasted barley. Can be either steeped, or mashed along with other malts. Can be used as a substitute for any black (patent) malt, including Carafa thype III.

Brew for Africa Carahell (Light Crystal) Malt 8.1-11.8°L (1kg)
Art. nr. B01224
New!
Product Description
Crystal malt is essentially pale malt which has undergone a heating and "stewing" process to convert some of the starches into sugars inside the kernel, which are then caramelized into longer chains that are not converted into simple sugars during mashing. This results in a more malty, caramel-sweet, fuller tasting beer. Light Crystal malt can add sweetness, fullness and roundness the the flavour of any beer style. This is a crystal malt which can be steeped and does not need mashing (but can be mashed along with other base malts). Can be used as a substitute for Briess Crystal 10 malt, Muntons Carapils, Fawcett Caramalt, Castel Cara-Blonde, Baird Carastan, and similar malts.

Brew for Africa Carapils (Dextrin) Malt 1.7-2.4°L (1kg)
Art. nr. B01042
Product Description
Dextrin malt gives a fuller body and mouthfeel to light beer styles (e.g. Pilsner, lager or Bock) and significantly improves head formation and retention. Use in small quantities (typically 3-5%), as it can cause a cloying, sugary sweetness if used in excess. This is a crystal malt which can be steeped and does not need mashing (but can be mashed along with other base malts). However, when steeped this malt may introduce unconverted starches in the wort. Most of these may disappear during boiling, but your mileage may vary. Replaces (and improves on) the older CaraFoam malt, and can be used at a substitute for any dextrin malt including Briess Dextrine.

Because it tends to be the most available malt, it is used for nearly every other style as well. Can be used as a substitute for any brand of pale malt. This is a base malt which must be mashed.
