Crystal malt barley (1 kg)

Crystal is a caramelised barley malt grain, particularly used in Ale and Mild beers to add body and a slightly amber colour, while maintaining the appearance of a Pale Ale. Of Belgian origin, Crystal barley malt is also used in Bitters and Pale Ale to add a typical sweet aroma, ideal for balancing the characteristic bitter notes of the hops. For its production, the Crystal malt that has not yet been dried is soaked and then heated to a temperature of 65°C until the starches are converted into sugars. The grains are then dried at a temperature of 250°C to convert part of the sugar into caramel, which then takes on a typical light red colour. Crystal malt, caramelised in several steps to obtain unique aromas and flavours, is also used in many Ale and Mild beers up to 5-20% of the total weight.
