Maker’s Caramel is made from premium 2-row barley.
After a long cool germination we stew this malt in its own juices at mashing temperature. This process starts the conversion of starches into sugars. We then ramp up the kiln to darken the malt and promote Maillard reactions with significant heat compared to our lighter Caramels. The end result is a malt with dark sweetness in the caramel and molasses realms.
