Briess Caramel Malt 20L produces golden hues and has a mellow, candy-like sweetness and a mild toffee flavor. It will contribute more flavor than a carapils, but not as much as darker caramel malts. Use 3-15% for enhanced body and foam stability with a mild color and flavor contribution.
Briess caramel malts are produced in a roaster rather than a kiln. This allows for the application of higher temperatures to the green malt, resulting in the development of unique flavors, colors, and aromas.

This is a nice grain for beers that need a sweet caramel flavor and a lighter color. If you want the flavor of this grain to come through you need to use it with a milder beer because the grains are a milder variety.
