Enjoy the beer that you deserve.
What it does :
Chocolate malt will add a brown color and a smooth, nutty, toasted flavor and aroma to your beer. You can use it to make Dark Lagers, Porters, and Stouts.
What it is:
This is a barley malt that is 390-470 Lovibond in color. It is roasted for 2 ½ hours, with heat gradually applied to reach a final temperature of 400-420 F (205-215 C) until the desired color is achieved. This malt contains no enzymes and little fermentables, and therefore does not require mashing.
Chocolate malt can be up to 5 percent of your grist.
Because little starch conversion is possible, it is ready for you to steep in 150 F (60 C) water for 20-30 minutes before adding to the boiling wort.
