Caramalt 10 (6L)- Muntons 55lb Sack
Cara Malt 10 is Muntons lowest color crystal malt. With its light color and mild flavor, Cara Malt 10 can be added to even the lightest beer styles
without affecting the core flavor profile. This malt is designed to bring body, improve mouthfeel and add character to beers, although the degree of
effect will depend on the rate at which Cara Malt 10 is added. As the Malt is only partially crystallized, and still has some enzyme activity, it can be
included in ratios of up to a maximum of 25% in traditional beer styles.
At higher dosage inclusions, (15 – 25%) the overall attenuation will be reduced but it will introduce added body and sweetness to the beer. In modern
no and low alcohol beers, which are rapidly growing in popularity, it has the potential to be used in exceptionally high dosages of 50 – 75%.
At these levels it gives the beer a solid highly flavorful base which is not as fermentable as a more typical standard wort.
Muntons crystal malts are available in a range of colors and flavor intensities, offering the brewer a wonderful palate of ingredients to craft the beer
they are seeking to achieve. Crystal malts are made by transferring germinating ‘green’ malt to a roasting drum where a partial starch conversion
takes place within the grain, creating sweet, ‘crystallized’ or ‘caramelized’ malt sugars. By selecting the correct crystal malt the brewer can introduce
interesting color hues, fruit, toffee, coffee, treacle and even chocolate notes to beers.
Highly attenuated beers such as Lagers, Brut IPAs, Saisons and Wild fermentations really benefit from the inclusion of some Cara Malt 10, as the high
percentage of dextrins and complex sugars bring a depth to these beer styles reducing the chance that the beer might be too thin or too dry. Just a
small inclusion of 2-3% is ideal.
