BLACK MALT Briess Malt for Beer Making 1 LB Unmilled (Formerly Black Patent)


BRIESS BLACK MALT 1LB: (Formerly Black Patent) A roasted malt colored to a higher degree than Chocolate Malt in the roasting process. This highly roasted malt provides intense color and a distinct dry, ashy, roast character with no effect on the foam color.  Black Malt has no diastatic activity and no fermentable extract and is simply used to add slight flavor and darker color in dark beers such as milds, porters and stouts. Briess Black malt can be used in small quantities (1-3%) to add color to any style beer with little or no flavor contribution.   It is typically used in higher quantities and often in combination with other roasted grains for darker beers like porters and stouts. Color: 500l (432-525L).  Product of USA.  Excellent for Stouts!  Also available in the 10LB and by special order in the 50LB sack
