Château Cara Blond®


$ 0.14


Château Cara Blond® is a very light-colored, Belgian crystal malt. It imparts a mild caramel-sweet aroma and adds golden color to beer. It contributes sweetness, but only very delicate toasted malt flavor. Crystal malts also add body and improve head retention. Cara Blond® is suitable for use with all beer styles, but its mild character will best contribute to light lagers and ales, low alcohol beers, and white beers. Crystal malts are gently cooked during the malting process. Cooking initiates the enzymatic conversion of starches into fermentable sugars, and caramelizes some of the sugars as the malt reaches its final color. This eliminates the need to mash crystal malt, and ensures that some of the sugars will survive fermentation to sweeten the beer. This malt was formerly known as “Castle Caramel Pilsner.” The 25 kg packages of Cara Blond® are labeled “Cara 20.”
