What it does :
Biscuit malt can add a sharp flavor to your homebrewed beer.
What it is:
Biscuit Malt is a barley malt that is 23-25 Lovibond in color. It is produced by maltsters who roast the grains at temperatures of 300-340 F (150-170 C) for up to an hour. This malt contains no enzymes, but requires mashing for starch conversion.
Biscuit Malt can be 3-15 percent of your grist. Of course, the actual amount you need depends on the style of beer that you are making. Use our brewing calculators to compute the exact amount you need to achieve your specific original gravity and color targets.
To extract fermentable sugars from Biscuit Malt, you need to mash it with the base malts before boiling the resulting extract in the wort.
