If you want caramel taste you are gonna need more than .5lbs of 60L.

I have used 1lb of 120L with excellent results in trying to get a actual caramel taste.

True! I've tried a few and there isn't much caramel flavor so maybe I'll try your method this season.

Turned out a little drier than i had hoped, with minimal flavor added from the malt. Back to the drawing board...

You could try using CaraMunich or Special B, which will give more sweetness and caramel notes than any of the crystal malts(which are actually crystalized not caramelized).

i was thinking of using one pund of caramunich for a five gallon batch of cider. Would this be enough to have a presence of caramel but not overwhelm or should i bump it up some?
