Dextrin Malt produced by Crisp Malting Group is a lower modified malt processed to provide a source of higher molecular weight compounds which will provide positive attributes to the finished beer in terms of greater body and mouthfeel with improved foam characteristics.
Inclusion of Dextrin Malt can be particularly beneficial when brewing with well modified Extra Pale Malt to produce golden ales or pilsner-style beers. The low colour of Dextrin Malt permits usage rates of up to 10% without impacting on final product colour.
Where the brewer is using a low colour Cara product to provide an improved sensory experience, Dextrin Malt can directly substitute. In addition to the final product attributes, brewers will find cost savings versus Cara products.
