Gives me caramel flavor, color, and sweetness

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.

Adds some sweetness and a raisin like flavor

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.
