CaraWheat, a caramel/crystal malt with a black color, is an essential ingredient in beer brewing. It imparts unique flavors and influences the taste of beer in several ways. With its rich and robust flavor profile, CaraWheat adds notes of toffee, caramel, and dark fruits to the brew. These flavors enhance the complexity and depth of various beer styles.
The properties of CaraWheat make it an excellent choice for enhancing both maltiness and sweetness in beers. Its caramelization process during malting creates a sweet aroma that can range from mild to intense depending on usage levels. This grain is primarily used for adding body, head retention, improving mouthfeel, and contributing deep amber or reddish hues to beers.
CaraWheat finds its application across different beer styles such as stouts, porters, dunkels (dark lagers), brown ales, bocks (strong lagers), Scotch ales / wee heavy ales among others. Its ability to add color along with distinctive flavors makes it highly versatile for brewers seeking complex profiles in their creations
