Pale chocolate malt
« on: January 01, 2021, 07:32:14 PM »
Hello, I use pale chocolate malt in my stout  recipe (10% of grain bill). For some reason pale chocolate malt are not available in our country at the moment.

Any credible work arounds / substitutes?

Pale Chocolate is kind of like brown malt to me. If you can't find that post the recipe and we can try to find a suitable sub.

Its not an exact match, but if you can get your hands on Kiln Coffee malt that is probably the closest option I can think of.

I use chocolate rye in my porters and it is a really good malt.  It is not as bitter as some of the chocolate malts.

I was thinking coffee malt, Swaen/blackswaen malting makes a great one, or brown malt which wouldn’t be exactly the same but similar.
