|Description:||Roasted Barley is a specialty ingredient that is most commonly employed in dark beer styles such as Stout or Porter. It is produced by roasting unmalted barley at higher temperatures, which lends a very dark colour and a distinct flavour profile.
Roasted Barley is best known for the dry roasted bitterness with some astringency, which can be a welcome trait in more complex dark beers. Best used in rates up to 5% of the total grain bill to achieve the desired effect in a Stout or Porter, or even less when used for colour correction in Brown or Amber ales.
