Malt of the Month: Dark Crystal Rye

We offer a wide range of speciality malts ranging from low colour crystals to highly roasted black malts.  One of the more unusual amongst our wide range of speciality malts is Dark Crystal Rye malt which is a particular favourite of ours.

This highly aromatic caramelised rye is perfect for adding breadcrust notes and bringing a touch of sweetness to any recipe.   When incorporated in the grist at high inclusion rates, it delivers flavours reminiscent of hazelnut and toffee.  Dark Crystal Rye malt has a colour of 230 EBC making it the perfect addition to introduce a red to copper hue to a beer.

When used in conjunction with extra low colour Ale Malts such as Muntons Super Pale they balance perfectly, as they allow more of the intense copper colour to shine through.
