Hi everyone!!
Does anyone have any experience using this malt.
I am making my pale ale which is usually 90% pale malt, 5% caramunich I and 5% wheat.
How do you think swapping the toffee malt with the caramunich I would work.
Thoughts??

I use it at a rate of 8 - 10% in my Golden Ales.

Caramunich is a lot darker so using the much lighter toffee you'll end up with a lighter coloured beer. You may notice the change in caramel notes if you use toffee, but at only 5% I'm not sure how significant this will be.

G'day Youngie
I have used it at 5%, 8% and 9%. My first use of it was at 5% but I can't remember how well it came through, suffice it to say I later upped it to 8% and then went on to do about 3 more brews at 9%. It is quite dominant to my taste buds at 9% and I think I would go back to 7 or 8 in future brews. 9% for me and I can really detect it but I'm not sure that I want to really be able to. I think I'd just like to have it contributing in the background to the overall flavour of my brew.

Cheers

Thanks BlackSands and Morrie.
Home brewing is all about experimenting so I think I’ll give it a go next brew but start with 7%-8% and go from there.
Cheers,

Youngie
