Malt Profile: CARARED

CaraRed

CARARED is a caramel (crystal) malt with a lovibond value in the range of 16 to 23. This product is from German maltster, Weyermann, and can be used in the mash (up to 25% of the grist) to achieve a deep red colour. Like other crystal malts, CARARED also aids head retention and contributes body to beer by introducing unfermentable sugars, leading to a higher final gravity.  Likewise, it will add those caramel or “malty” aromas and flavours. It’s recommended for use in a variety of beers including but not limited to:

  • Red Ale
  • Scottish Ale
  • Bock
  • Brown Ale
  • Alt Beer
