Crisp Pale Chocolate Malt
Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

200-250L.  Half as dark as chocolate, this grain imparts a softer flavor than it's counterpart. Still great to use in classic dark beers.

Great stuff
I don't know why this tends to be harder to find at the local shops, but I'm glad to have a fresh source for it. This is a key ingredient in so many beers because it isn't as harsh as darker roasts can be. Great stuff!

Good Stuff
I use some of this in my Stout. I think it adds some nice flavor and it seems to come pretty fresh.

Dark color and tasty flavor
A mellow round flavor and a nice dark color make this malt perfect for adding color to your brew. I use it for ambers through stouts and am always glad I did. It adds a good bass-note flavor that works well to counter sweeter flavors.

watch the brand
You need to watch the brand of pale chocolate. Some maltsters will put this in the 200L range, while others are closer to the 400L range, but call it Pale Chocolate.

Preffered over darker chocolate malts
I'm not a fan of overly roasted grains which is why I prefer to use pale chocolate malt instead of other darker malts. Soft cocoa flavors make this grain perfect for an upfront flavor or mixed in with other malts to add complexity. I use it in all my porter and stout recipes.
