Biscuit® Malt
Base Malt 18º-22º Lovibond
Unique and very special Belgian malt. Lightly kilned, then lightly torrefied at up to 160°C. Château Biscuit® malt produces a very pronounced "toasty" finish in the beer. Imparts a warm bread and biscuit-like aroma and flavour. Promotes a light to medium warm brown colour of the mash. This malt is used to improve the roasted flavour and aroma that characterize ales and lagers lending the subtle properties of black and chocolate malts. No enzymes. Must be mashed with malts having a surplus of diastatic power.

Black Malt
Chocolate Malt 500º-600º Lovibond
Malt Black 1300 EBC. The darkest malted barley. Torrefied at up to 235°C.
Enhances the aroma of character beers by producing a more stringent flavour than other coloured malts. Imparts a slight burnt or smoky flavour.

Cara Blond® Malt
Base Malt 7º-9º Lovibond
A pale Belgian caramel-style malt. High temperature of germination. Taste development at up to 220°C, intense aroma. Château Cara Blond® imparts a mild caramel-sweet aroma adding golden colour to beer. A distinguishing characteristic of all caramel malts is glassiness. This glassy endosperm creates the desirable non-fermentable components that give true caramel malt the ability to contribute mouthfeel, head, head retention, and extended beer stability.

Cara Ruby® Malt
Base Malt 19.3º Lovibond
A medium Belgian caramel-style malt. High temperature of germination. Taste development at up to 220°C, intense aroma.  Château Cara Ruby® malt imparts a rich caramel-sweet aroma and a toffee-like flavour, adding light amber to reddish colour to beer. A distinguishing characteristic of all caramel malts is glassiness. This glassy endosperm creates the desirable non-fermentable components that give true caramel malt the ability to contribute mouthfeel, head, head retention, and extended beer stability.

Cara Gold® Malt
Base Malt 42º-50º Lovibond
A dark Belgian caramel-style malt. High temperature of germination. Taste development at up to 220°C, intense aroma.
Château Cara Gold® malt imparts a strong caramel-sweet aroma and unique toffee-like and brown sugar flavour, adding a rich amber colour to beer. A distinguishing characteristic of all caramel malts is glassiness. This glassy endosperm creates the desirable non-fermentable components that give true caramel malt the ability to contribute mouthfeel, head, head retention, and extended beer stability.

Chocolate Malt
Base Malt 95º-133º Lovibond
Belgian chocolate malt. Torrefied at 220°C and then quickly cooled when the desired colour is reached.  Château Chocolat malt is a highly roasted malt with a deep brown colour. This is where its name comes from. Château Chocolat malt is used to adjust the colour of beer and imparts a nutty, toasted flavour. Château Chocolat malt shares many of the characteristics of Black Malt but provides a less bitter flavour than Black malt and is lighter than Black, because it is roasted for a slightly shorter period of time and the end temperatures are not so high.

Monastique Malt (Aromatic)
Base Malt 16º-21º Lovibond
Belgian brown malt. Château Monastique malt is a more toasted form of pale malt. Gives a strong taste of cooked bread, nuts and fruit. Château Monastique malt has a bitter flavour which mellows on ageing, and can be quite intensely flavoured. Château Monastique malt is typically used as a small proportion of the grist in the production of beers requiring some substantial depth of colour.

Munich - Light Malt
Base Malt 5.4º-6.9º Lovibond
Belgian specialty malt of Munich type.
Rich, golden malt. Provides a modest colour increase toward a nice, golden-orange colour. Adds a pronounced grainy malty flavour to many beer styles without affecting the foam stability and body. Is also used in small quantities in combination with Château Pilsen 2RS to produce light colour beers, improving the malty flavour and giving the beer a richer colour. Enhances the taste of character beers.

Pale Ale 2-Row Base Malt
Base Malt 3.1º-3.8º Lovibond
Belgian light-coloured base malt. Usually used as a base malt or in combination with Pilsen 2RS malt to impart a richer malt flavour and additional colour. Being deeper in colour, this malt can add a golden hue to the wort. It is used with strong yeasts to produce amber and bitter beers. Château Pale Ale malt is kilned longer and is usually better modified, providing a more pronounced flavour than Pilsen 2RS. The enzymatic activity of Château Pale Ale malt is sufficient when used with large proportion of non-enzymatic specialty malts.

Pilsen Base Malt
Base Malt 1.4º-1.8º Lovibond
The lightest coloured Belgian malt. Produced from the finest European 2-row spring malting barley varieties. The lightest in colour, this malt is well-modified and is perfectly suited for single-step infusion or for decoction mashing. Our Château Pilsen malt carries a strong, sweet malt flavour and has a sufficient enzymatic power to be used as base malt.

Special B Malt
Base Malt 95º-133º Lovibond
Very special Belgian dark malt, obtained through specific double roasting process.
Is used to produce a deep red to dark brown-black colour and fuller body. Unique flavour and aroma. Gives much colour and raisin-like flavour. Imparts a rich malty taste and a hint of nut and plum flavour. May substitute Chocolate and Black malt if bitterness is not desired.
