Possible Substitutions:

  • Biscuit Malt: This is the most direct substitute in terms of the toasty, bready biscuit notes. However, it lacks the sweetness and other complexities of aromatic malt [1, 2].

  • Crystal Malt (around 15-20L): Crystal malts in this range offer a similar colour contribution (light amber to copper) and a touch of sweetness, although the caramel character will be more prominent compared to aromatic malt's honeyed notes 

  • Caraaroma Malt: This malt provides a similar amber colour and some sweetness, but with a less pronounced biscuit character than aromatic malt [2]. It can be a good option if you want the colour and sweetness without overpowering biscuit flavours.

  • A blend: Experiment with combining biscuit malt with either Caraaroma or a touch of Crystal Malt (around 10-15L) to achieve a closer overall profile to aromatic malt. This allows you to balance the biscuit character with a hint of sweetness
