- Weyermann Carapils Malt, crushed, 3kg
For enhancing the malt flavour in German-style lagers.
As used in Pilsner, "Lagerbier", alcohol-reduced Beer, Light Beer and Bock Beer amongst others at a rate of up to 10%.
Produced from Bavarian spring barley, this malt is produced by loading the modified grains into a sealed kiln while the moisture content is still around 50%.
The grains are then heated to between 65°C and 80°C, which enables them to mash themselves and caramelise the resulting sugars. The final kilning is at around 110°C for just long enough to dry the grain without undue darkening.
When used in lager beers, Carapils promotes head formation and retention and gives the beer a fuller rounder flavour. As the starches have already been converted during malting, this malt is ideal for use by extract brewers.
