Also known as: CaraRuby
- Caramel/Crystal Malt
CaraRed, a caramel/crystal malt with a dark color, is widely used in beer brewing for its unique flavor profile and its ability to enhance the taste of the final product. Its deep red hue lends itself well to darker beers such as stouts, porters, and amber ales. The use of CaraRed adds subtle notes of caramel and toffee that contribute to a rich and sweet flavor profile.
In addition to its distinct flavors, CaraRed also contributes certain properties that are beneficial in brewing. It provides body and mouthfeel to the beer, resulting in a fuller texture that enhances overall drinkability. This grain is often utilized for both coloring purposes as well as adding sweetness and complexity to various beer styles.
