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.
