Cara Wheat Malt


Cara Wheat is type of Crystal (caramel) malt produced from Wheat rather than Barley by the Weyermann malting group. The process darkens the wheat malt (from 3L to 38-53L) and produces nonfermentable sugars. The roasting process produces a caramel, roast, moderately sweet flavor in addition to keeping the mouthfeel properties of the base wheat malt.
Cara Wheat is a great malt for darker wheat-based beers (Schwartzbier, Dunkelweizen) and can be a good adjunct in small proportions (say 10%) to add mouthfeel to non-wheat-based beers like Brown Beers, Belgian Dubbel, and maybe even a Pale Ale/IPA in smaller amounts.
