BEST Chocolate is the ideal malt for brewers who want to start exploring the possibilities of beer with a distinct roasted flavor. The malt is produced from green or kiln-dried malt using the very best brewing barley in a special, particularly gentle roasting process. This helps to prevent distinct bitter flavors, as demonstrated by the extremely low pyrazine levels. As a result BEST Chocolate can also be used at up to 10% of the grain bill to produce very pleasant dark beers and stouts without an astringent, bitter taste. The foam on the beer remains light-colored. BEST Chocolate complies with the purity guidelines of the German Reinheitsgebot.
