Products: Caramel Malts

Briess has been producing roasted Caramel Malts in the U.S.A. since the mid-1950s. That tradition continues today, with Briess producing a wide range of roasted Caramel Malts in small batches in drum roasters.

Roasting, rather than kilning, is necessary in order to develop the glassy centers and rich caramel flavors associated with caramel (sometimes called crystal) malts.

Briess operates seven drum roasters. Each has been been custom designed and engineered specifically for roasting malt and barley. The custom engineering allows for the application of significantly higher temperatures to green malt, which is a must for the caramelization of sugars, uniform temperature application to all kernels, and precise control of airflow and moisture. Full, caramel flavors and aromas are not achievable with kilning. Drum roasters also produce more uniform and consistentresults within each batch and from lot to lot — a mark of quality that Briess customers have come to expect. For a deeper discussion about the difference between caramel and crystal malts, read Briess Technical Services Manager Bob Hansen's blog, "Is it Crystal or "Caramel Malt?"
