So I bought some blackPriz Malt, which is
Intensely roasted from hulless barley, Blackprinz® Malt is an amazingly smooth and mellow flavored black malt without bitter, astringent, dry flavors or aftertaste. Despite its delicate and clean flavor Blackprinz® Malt won’t disappoint the eye, delivering exceptionally deep color to dark beers or a slight to intense boost of color to other beer styles. The hints of toasted malty flavor that come through at slightly higher usage rates make Blackprinz® Malt a unique member and truly the crown jewel of the black malt category.
Im making a stout and decide to use this instead of Roasted Barley. Is this a reasonable substitution? How much would be appropriate to use in a 5gl batch?
Also does this grain need to be crushed or is it good to go?
I also have some choclate malt, does that need to be crushed as well?
