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 80 is a medium dark crystal malt with a deep reddish hue and pronounced flavors of dark caramel with hints of raisin. A great caramel malt for many styles (especially red ales), use 3-15% for enhanced body, foam stability, color, and flavor. 80°L

I use 16 to a 24 ounces of Crystal 80 in my Porters and Stouts, and 8 ounces in one of my IPAs. In addition to adding some sweetness, it thickens the beer.
Use this grain to add body and color, it also improves head retention._x000D_
The sweetness is good for balancing a Stout and also in Brown ales. It adds a raisin like taste in larger amounts. For IPAs I use lighter Crystal not 80.
