Pauls Malt – Reliable Lighthouse Light Chocolate Malt
More bitter, honey-like accents than caramalt, with coffee, coco-like tones. We produce this malt at our Pauls Malt Ltd. plant in Knapton, North Yorkshire, UK. Light chocolate malt is produced by roasting kiln dried malt to temperatures of up to 220°C. Water is used to extend the roasting time and for quenching and cooling at the end of a roast to prevent combustion. Shorter roasting time to regular chocolate.
Traditional British malts lean toward more doughy, biscuity characteristics and lend themselves to malt-forward ales and lagers. This is ancestral home to the beloved Maris Otter variety of barley used in so many classic beer styles associated with English pubs.
