Viking Caramel Sweet Malt is made from green malt. A very high degree of carame-lization and special mild sweetness in taste is characteristic for this malt. The amylolytic activity of Caramel Sweet Malt is zero. Maillard products formed in the process can act as antioxidants and contribute to flavor stability. Caramel Sweet Malt is typically connected with 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. Due to very pleasant taste the usage rate can be up to 30% .
