Briess roasters are efficient drum roasters that have been custom designed and engineered to roast malt and barley. These customized drum roasters allow fo the application of significantly higher temperatures to green malt. These higher temperatures are a must for the true crystallization of sugars and the development of unique flavors, colors and physical properities only associated with the glassy, crystallized sugars of Caramel Malts.
