Produced from a hull-less barley, Black Prinz malt operates similarly to de-bittered black, but with a much smoother flavor. The absence of a husk makes this malt silky smooth, avoiding any bitter, astringent or dry flavors that the husks impart on your wort. Will contribute significantly to the coloring of your beer, much as a Black malt would. Great choice when brewing Black IPAs, Black Lagers, Black Ales, Schwarzbiers and other beers where you desire deep, rich coloring with minimal roast flavors.
