Roast Barley
Origin
Character profile

Roasted Barley is used in the production of dry or bitter Stouts and other dark beers, or for the careful adjustment of Pilsen beer colours. Because the roasting process is slightly different from that used for Roast malt and a higher final temperature is used, the balance of pyrazines to pyrroles is different, with there being more pyrazines present in this product. This leads to a more bitter flavour and the use of the material in the so-called bitter Stouts. It can also be used to colour and flavour Lager beers, but the quantities used of the total grist are relatively small.
