Application Tip:

Found in Pale Ales, Bitters, Viennas, Octoberfests and other styles to impart rich amber to slightly reddish color. Useful in darker styles, Crystal Malt I provides sweetness and caramel notes in finished beers, proving versatile of a wide range of styles. It is my favorite of the Caramel malts for it's sheer versatility. 

To provide caramel malt backbone to London ESB styles, specify a recipe with 88.9% ESB malt, 7.4% TF&S Crystal I and 3.7% Amber Malt. Utilize Northdown hops @ 60 minutes remaining to achieve a bitterness of  27.4 IBU, UK Bramling cross @  30 Min to reach 5.5 IBUs, Challenger hops @ 15 minutes remaining to achieve 8.3 IBUs for an overall total of 41.2 IBUS. Finish the boil, turn off heat and add in 1 oz UK Kent Goldings at a rate of 1 oz per 5 gallons. Ferment with Wyeast 1968 London ESB yeast at 64-66F.
