Roasted Barley - Thomas Fawcett & Sons

Roasted Barley - 1lb

  • $2.19

Made from unmalted barley. Adds bitterness and astringency. Great for Stouts and Porters, or in minimal amounts for a Brown or Red ale.


Roasted Barley can add a special touch that will make all the difference between a good and a great Stout or Porter. 

Made from unmalted barley by roasting it at a high temperature, Roasted Barley delivers a very intense dark colour, which may be used for colour corrections when used sparingly. But even in small amounts it is known to impart a distinct roasted astringency and dry bitterness, which can add up to the complexity of many dark beer styles. 

Should be used in rates not exceeding 5% of the grain bill as it can be overpowering.

  • Usage Rate: 3 - 5%
