CHÂTEAU ROASTED BARLEY from Castle Malting
EBC 1000 - 1400
Lovibond 375.6 - 525.6
Château Roasted Barley is a highly roasted barley that imparts a burnt, grainy, coffee-like flavor to your beer. It has many characteristics of Château Black malt, though it is far more complex. It actually has some starch that can be converted during the mash, thus impacting the specific gravity. Château Roasted Barley will also lend to the sweetness to the beer. If compared to Château Chocolat and Château Black malts, roasted barley produces the lightest colored head. Imparts a deep red mahogany color to beer and very strong roasted flavor. Gives dryness to Porters and Stouts.
Uses: Porters, Stouts, Dark beers
Rate: Up to 10% of grain bill (generally use 3-7% for a coffee flavor in Porters and Stouts and 2-5% to add complexity to darker brews)
