Crystal (Light) Malt - Simpsons 1oz
Simpsons Light Crystal Malt is a type of caramel malt that undergoes a stewing process to convert the grain’s starches into sugars, which are then caramelized through roasting. This malt is known for its light amber color, typically falling in the range of 30-40 Lovibond. It imparts sweet caramel and toffee notes, and enhances the body and mouthfeel of the beer while also improving foam stability.
Suitable beer styles for Simpsons Light Crystal Malt include, but are not limited to:
- Pale Ales: Adds sweetness and body without overpowering the beer’s lighter character.
- IPA (India Pale Ale): Contributes to the malt backbone and adds a layer of caramel sweetness to balance hop bitterness.
- Bitters: Enhances the malt character and sweetness in traditional British bitters.
- Blond Ales: Imparts subtle color and sweetness to lighter ales.
- Golden Ales: Suitable for adding a touch of caramel flavor and enhancing the body.
- Amber Ales: Provides color and malt complexity to amber ales without making them overly dark.
