Features
Belgian wheat chocolate malt. Malted wheat is roasted at 230°C and then quickly cooled when the desired colour is reached.
Characteristics
Château Wheat Chocolate malt is a highly roasted malt, though not as high as black malt. With the help of this malt a deep brown colour with hints of black coffee and bittersweet chocolate flavour can be achieved in beer. The wheat version of Chocolate malt has a more pronounced dark chocolate character compared to its barley counterpart. This malt adds colour and flavour to a wide variety of dark beer styles and is used to smooth out certain English-style dark beers, such as stouts, porters, or brown ales. Château Wheat Chocolate is husk free and was especially developed by Castle Malting to avoid astringency, bitterness and dry flavour or aftertaste in beers. This malt can replace in a proportion of 1:1 the de-husked* chocolate malt, imparting a smoother flavour.
Usage
English-style dark beers, stouts, porters, or brown ales. Up to 20% of the mix.
Storage and Shelf life
Malt should be stored in a clean, cool (< 22 °C), dry (< 35 RH %) and pest free environment. If these conditions are observed, we recommend using all whole kernel products within 18-24 months from the date of manufacture and all milled products within 3 months. Improperly stored malts can lose freshness and flavor.
