Caramel malts 20⁰ to 160⁰ L/SRM

Made using a unique process, MaltBroue caramel malts are not produced in a conventional roaster or kiln.

Mixing is not possible with a conventional kiln; the malt is mixed by hand or can be mixed using an endless screw mechanism.

MaltBroue kiln is unique. Mixing malt by rotation, like a roaster. This process allows standardizing of the transformation and caramelization of grains as much as possible.
