Bitterless Black Malts
We specifically developed these two unique black malts so they have no bitter, astringent, dry flavor or aftertaste. Use them in Black IPAs, Black Lagers, Black Ales, Schwarzbiers and other beers for deep, rich color with only hints of subtle roasted flavor.
Both malts function as a 1:1 replacement to debittered black malt, but with smoother flavor. That's because debittered black malts are made by removing a great deal of the husk (but not all of it). Since it's the husk that develops bitter notes during roasting, debittered black malts will contribute a certain amount of bitter, astringent or dry flavors or after taste to beer.
Not Blackprinz® or Midnight Wheat which are made from grains with no husk.
Which one should you use? For a starting point keep in mind that Midnight Wheat Malt is the smoothest source of black color of any malt available. Blackprinz® Malt, meanwhile, delivers color plus more roasted flavor.
