Special X

Special X is a dark caramel malt that has been roasted only for a short time. As a result, it develops a very intense, exceptional flavor profile. Adding max. 20% to the grain bill leads to a luminous, chestnut red to chestnut brown color in a 12°P beer. Even when used in smaller amounts, the malt is ideally suited to supporting the overall body of dark beers, giving them a more diverse and interesting taste. Special X is a fantastic malt variety that brewers looking for new ideas should take advantage of because of the diverse possibilities of this special malt.
