B12226 - Weyermann CaraAmber Malt 23.1-30.6°L (1kg)
This light to medium crystal malt intensifies the aroma and color of darker beers, particularly German Alt, stouts, bocks and porters, but can also be a good ingredient for a variety of English and Belgian ales. This is a crystal malt which can be steeped and does not need mashing (but can be mashed along with other base malts).

B12224 - Weyermann Carahell (Light Crystal) Malt 8.1-11.8°L (1kg)
Crystal malt is essentially pale malt which has undergone a heating and "stewing" process to convert some of the starches into sugars inside the kernel, which are then caramelized into longer chains that are not converted into simple sugars during mashing. This results in a more malty, caramel-sweet, fuller tasting beer. Light Crystal malt can add sweetness, fullness and roundness the the flavour of any beer style. This is a crystal malt which can be steeped and does not need mashing (but can be mashed along with other base malts). Can be used as a substitute for Briess Crystal 10 malt, Muntons Carapils, Fawcett Caramalt, Castel Cara-Blonde, Baird Carastan, and similar malts.
B22352 - Simpsons Caramalt 11.8-16.3°L (1kg)
Simpsons Caramalt is a premium English crystal malt. It has a sweet, chewy and heavenly character. It contributes golden-hued colours and rich flavour enrichment from its mild toffee notes in lagers and pale ales.

This is a crystal malt which can be steeped and does not need mashing (but can be mashed along with other base malts). Can be used as a substitute for Crystal 30 malt.
B12229 - Weyermann Caramunich Type III Malt 53.1-60.6°L (1kg)
This medium crystal malt is one of the most commonly used caramel and crystal malts. Not to be confused with the Munich base malt, with which it has nothing to do. It adds a measurable sweetness and caramel flavor to a variety of beer styles. Well suited for many English, Belgian and American style milds, porters, stouts and bitters, and is often used in small quantities to adjust the flavour and colour balance of just about any type of beer. This is a crystal malt which can be steeped and does not need mashing (but can be mashed along with other base malts). Can be used as a substitute for Briess Crystal 60, Medium Crystal malt, Fawcett Dark Crystal type 1, Medium Caramel malt and Caramel Munich.
B12042 - Weyermann Carapils (Dextrin) Malt 1.7-2.4°L (1kg)
Dextrin malt gives a fuller body and mouthfeel to light beer styles (e.g. Pilsner, lager or Bock) and significantly improves head formation and retention. Use in small quantities (typically 3-5%), as it can cause a cloying, sugary sweetness if used in excess. This is a crystal malt which can be steeped and does not need mashing (but can be mashed along with other base malts). However, when steeped this malt may introduce unconverted starches in the wort. Most of these may disappear during boiling, but your mileage may vary.

B12225 - Weyermann Carared Malt 15.6-19.2°L (1kg)

B15292 - Castel / Chateau Château Biscuit Malt 18-20°L (1kg)
Biscuit malt is unique among malts. Along with the American Briess Victory® malt, for which it is an excellent replacement, this is the only base malt that can also be steeped in small quantities to lend a wonderful malty character to extract-based brews. Biscuit malt is a Belgian malt, so it is excellently suited to give many Belgian ales their typical character, but it also works brilliantly in many English and American ales. This lightly kilned malt is known for its lovely sweetish biscuit-like aroma and flavour, and after crystal malt this is perhaps the most frequently used speciality malt. Can be used as an excellent substitute for American Briess Victory® malt. Biscuit malt can be steeped in small quantities, or mashed along with base malts, typically making up 15% or so of the total grain bill.
