DetailsMaillard Malts is proud to carry products from Briess Malt and Ingredient Co, in Chilton Wisconsin. 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. Caramel 60 is a widely used, versatile, medium crystal malt that will contribute a rich sweetness, and pleasant toasted bread and pronounced, full caramel flavor with a light reddish hue. Use 3-15% in numerous beer styles for enhanced body and foam stability as well as additional flavor and color. 60°L

5.0 / 5.06 ReviewsGoes well in IPAsI like Caramel/Crystal 60 in my IPAs to partially offset the bitterness. The Crystal adds some mouthfeel and layers in a bready taste to help make the IPA more interesting.January 22, 2014Awesome MaltThis is a great malt. One of my favorite, actually. Very versatile malt that can go into pretty much any beer style. Adds a moderate toffee/candy flavor and color is a goldish/sometimes red, depending upon the quantity used.February 4, 2014My standard specialty grainOut of all of the different lovibond caramel malts I've tried, this is my mainstay. I put a pound of this into most pale ales I make, just to give the beer balance. The 60L contributes a very pleasant caramel taste, not as clean as some of the low lovibond caramels or the honey malt, nor as roasty/fruity as some of the higher lovibond caramels. Adds body and sweetness as well (though only a bit), as well as some head stabilityFebruary 16, 2014Good qualityIt adds sweetness and mouthfeel as well as darkening the beer a little. _x000D_Good for IPAs and Pale ales. If you us enough of it, it has a bready taste, which is good in English ales.February 21, 2014Also Called Crystal 60LI use this grain to add body and color to my beers. It can also help improve head retention._x000D_March 5, 2014
