Caramel/Crystal Malt


CaraVienne, a caramel/crystal malt with a dark color, is widely used in beer brewing for its unique flavor profile. It imparts sweet and malty notes to the beer while adding depth and complexity to the taste. The rich caramel flavors derived from CaraVienne contribute to a smooth mouthfeel and enhance the overall sweetness of the brew.

One of the key influences of CaraVienne on beer is its ability to add body and improve head retention. Its properties enable it to increase viscosity, resulting in a fuller-bodied beer that lingers on the palate. Additionally, CaraVienne helps balance out bitterness by providing residual sweetness.

Typically used in various beer styles such as Amber Ale, American Pale Ale (APA), Irish Red Ale, Brown Ale, and Bock beers; CaraVienne provides these styles with their characteristic deep amber or reddish-brown hues. Its utilization ranges from small amounts for subtle enhancements to larger quantities for pronounced caramel flavors in specialty brews where darker colors are desired.
