OPTIMA Caramel Light 7-9 Malt

A light-coloured (EBC 7 to 9) caramel malt, made from green malt subjected to saccharification and caramelisation. Thanks to a special roasting process, the malt brings the taste and aroma of caramel, candied sugar, cereal cookies and the top of the baked cake to the beer, but it does not give the beer a dark colour or toasted, ashy aromas.

It is perfect for all styles of beer where a fine, clean caramel is required, particularly British light ales and less dry stouts and imperial stouts. It is also recommended as an addition to cold-hopped beers. It can constitute even up to 50 percent of the grist.

Aroma: cereal, slightly phenolic, cellary, husky.
