Viking Black Malt

APPLICATIONS

Black Malt is used in dark beers like stouts and porters, mainly for its strong coloring ability. Normally portions 1-2% give a remarkable increase in color without significant change in flavor. By raising the percentage of Black Malt in malt bill the changes in taste can be found quickly. Dosage rates more than 10% are rare.
