Crisp Speciality malt

What are speciality malts?
Speciality malts according to Crisp: They’re something different. Using Rye, Wheat or Oats can help to enhance the body and improve head retention, whilst creating deep flavours and spice to the beer.  These products help give a beer complexity and a uniqueness that will differentiate your beer from others.  All of the malted cereals have individual characters and attributes. They follow the same basic malting process as barley but need the speciality vat or floor maltings due to their difference in size and shape.

Dextrin Malt

Dextrin malt is germinated in the process to create longer chain sugars that survive
the mashing process to give higher attenuation limits and thus fuller tasting beers.
It can provide extra body and improve the head retention of your brew.

Munich Light

Munich Malt has its origins in Germany where traditional beers gained their rich malty
character from the addition of specialist malts with enhanced colour and flavour.
These products are made on a conventional malt kiln using processes that promote higher
levels of soluble protein and simple sugars which interact when heat is applied to produce
a product rich in melanoidin and other colour
and flavour compounds.

Vienna

Vienna Malt is made on a conventional malt kiln and is cured at moderately higher temperatures
than pale malt. Its origins lie in Vienna or amber lagers, but Vienna Malt will give golden hues
to other beers and will develop body and mouthfeel. It retains sufficient enzyme activity to be used
as base malt in all-malt grists.
