Kilned vs. Roasted: Do You Really Know Your Specialty Malt?

Craft Brewers Conference 2016
Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Speakers: David Richter

Only two commercial maltsters in the U.S. operate roasters to produce specialty malt. This seminar will present a basic understanding of the malting process before delving into the differences between producing malt on a kiln compared to producing malt in a drum roaster. Caramel malt production will be discussed, followed by a sampling of a pair of malts that, while the same Lovibond, tell a radically different story in flavor.
