CaraVienne is a pale to medium crystal-type malt produced by De Wolf-Cosyns Maltings malting in Belgium. Like other 'cara' style malts this variety is malted using a technique where green (sprouted) malted is drum-roasted to produce some non-fermentable sugars. The result is some added sweetness and body. In addition, CaraVienne is then roasted to about 24L to produce a slightly toasty, and smoothly sweet malt.
Caravienne is a great adjunct in any beer where you might use Caramel malts to add a little color, some mouth feel, and some toasty flavors. Great candidates are Abbey style beers, English Bitters, and German Marzen, Oktoberfest etc. In addition, CaraVienne can be a good substitute for standard Crystal malts in American Beers like APA and IPA. It makes a great addition when you just need a little bit of nutty sweetness in an otherwise light style.
