BLACKPRINZ MALT LB
Briess Blackprinz Malt is a dark, roasted malt specifically designed for beer making. With its intense, deep flavors of chocolate and coffee, it adds a unique and complex taste to your finished beer. This malt creates a deep red to dark brown color in your beer, and gives your beer a mouth-filling, yet smooth, roasted character. The malt also adds a bit of sweetness, which is helpful in cutting down the bitterness of hops. With its complex flavor profile and intense color, Briess Blackprinz Malt is the perfect choice for any beer that calls for a dark roasted malt.
Briess Blackprinz Malt 1 lb adds an excellent malt for color with subtle, smooth flavor for Black IPAs, dark wheat beers and Schwarzbier. Use up to 10% for deep color plus mild, smooth flavor in porters and stouts. Enjoy the deep color with mild roasted/chocolate/coffee flavors.

CHARACTERISTICS / APPLICATIONS
Blackprinz® Malt is produced from hulless barley and functions as a 1:1 replacement to debittered black malt, but with smoother flavor. That's because debittered black malts are made by removing a great deal of the husk, but not all of it. Since husk develops bitter notes during roasting, debittered black malts will contribute a certain amount of bitter, astringent or dry flavors or after taste to beer.
Blackprinz® Malt will contribute the same color characteristics as Black Malt but without the bitter, astringent, dry flavors or aftertaste.
Use in Black IPAs, Black Lagers, Black Ales, Schwarzbiers and other beers for deep, rich color with only hints of subtle roasted flavor, and for color adjustment in any beer style.
