Crystal Malt question
Just wondering what the differences would be of using .25 lbs of crystal 120 vs. .50 lbs of crystal 60? I'm trying to use it for color mostly without adding too much flavor and unfermentables.
Thanks, James

well obviously the 60 will have a different taste than the 120. since you are adding twice as much of the 60 the taste will be more pronounced and there will be more unfermentable sugars in the wort. the color on the other hand should be the same.

Ok. just checking. I wasn't sure if the 120 would have twice the amount of unfermentable sugars because of how its dried at a higher temp for longer amount of time.

If you want color with very little flavor, Weyermann makes Carafa Special for that very purpose.
