A note for Brewers...

Understanding the malts sensory profile is crucial for the brewer. At inclusion rates between 3 and 10%, a low colour crystal malt will provide delicate notes of sweet caramel, golden syrup, malty biscuity notes and an infusion of nuts and dried fruits. Introducing dark crystal malts to the grist brings greater flavour intensities, with powerful black treacle notes standing out supported by layers of rich caramelised sugar, roast coffee, a delicate bitterness and prominent rich dried fruits and nuts.
