Simpsons DRC™ has been several years in the making. Using our years of roasting experience, knowledge of malt flavor profiles and pilot roasting facilities, we have managed to produce this unique malt. This malt is at the darker end of our Caramel malt spectrum, however imparts a colour and an intense sweet malty aroma second to none which must be experienced to be believed. This new malt has the classic Simpsons Malt house feel and instantly breaks down in the palate once chewed. It has a distinctive aroma and flavour that is very complex and imparts a heavy, dark caramel taste with more subtle notes of burnt sugar, raisin, and dark dried fruits such as cherries and plums. It can also deliver some of the softer roasty notes of a chocolate or black malt but without the astringency or bitterness. Simpsons DRC™ will produce a deep brown colour with ruddy highlights and add body and foam stability like all caramel malts. Use it to brew traditional Belgian Abbey and Trappist Ales, Dubbels and Dark Strong Ales, but also try it in UK Brown Ales, Stouts, Porters and or any other dark beers, to add an extra layer of complexity.

I recently brewed an imperial oatmeal brown ale with about 10% of this malt in the grist and fermented with WLP007. The combination of this malt and the WLP created a strong black cherry and plum note that is reminiscent of a Belgian dubbel. I would highly recommend this malt for dark British styles and dark Belgian styles. As always with Farmhouse Brewing Supply, the malt arrived fresh and unharmed
