Description

60 °L - Viking Malt - Raisins, prunes, and brown sugar are flavors we get from this malt. Caramel 150 is the equivalent of Crystal or Caramel 60 in color but very different flavor.  We love this malt and think it is dynamite in rich brown ales, killer in Dubbels, and perfect in any darker style where you want that rich background.  By comparison Viking Caramel 100 has flavors of sweet wort which are more traditional in flavor but none of the sweet raisin in 150. On the other side, Caramel 200 still has raisin and prune but it is has the beginning of a burnt characteristic.     

Viking Caramel Malts are made from green malt . A high degree of caramelization is characteristic of this malt. The amylolytic activity of Caramel Malts is zero. Maillard products formed in the process can act as antioxidants and contribute to flavor stability. Caramel Malts usually improve foam quality and head retention.

Caramel Malts are well suited for winter beers, ale-type beers and other aromatic beers like dark lagers and stouts. Small amounts can be used for color adjustment and flavor enrichment of pale lagers as well. Compared to Cara Plus, Caramel Malts have a stronger character.

I used a pound of this malt in a 'red' beer I brewed, and it turned out great. It offers a robust yet clean addition to final product. I would definitely use it again.

This malt is much darker than the pictures.
As a new brewer who has a year experience and about 30 batches under his belt, I do have limited experience with some things. I generally make ales and often use a lower loviBond caramel 10-20l) in them. I decided to look for a higher loviBond for a more noticeable flavor profile and decided to go with this 60L. Doesn't look very toasted in the pictures. It's Waaaaay darker than what is pictured! Disappointed in this inaccurate description of the malt. Hopefully it's not awful.
