Caramel 100 Organic

Organic Caramel Malt 100 is made from organic green malt. A high degree of caramelization is characteristic of this malt. The amylolytic activity of Organic Caramel Malt 100 is zero.

Storage & Packaging

Production and packaging Organic Caramel Malt 100 is produced in Finland and Poland. As a standard malt is available in bulk, containers, big bags and 25 kg pp bags.
Storage and safety Malt should be stored in a cool (< 20°C), dry (< 40 RH %), odorless and pest free place. Under these conditions unopened bags of malt can be stored for a minimum of 2 years from the date of bagging and unopened bags of crushed malt for a minimum 1 year from the date of bagging. Opened bags are beyond Viking Malt’s control, and we always recommend that opened bags are used at once. Anyhow, if opened bags are carefully re-sealed and then stored under the recommended conditions, they are expected to endure the storage times mentioned above. You should always keep the malts away from hot surfaces. Do not inhale the malt dust.
