Biscuit Malt is a style of highly flavored specialty malt that is produced using a drum roaster. Biscuit malt is produced when germinated, kiln-dried barley is then roasted at high temperature but for a relatively short roasting time, resulting in a color of about 30° Lovibond.

Biscuit malt is sometimes also referred to as Victory malt.

Biscuit Malt Brewing Values

These are the common ranges that we've seen with Biscuit Malt over the years. Each manufacturer can have slightly different qualities, so these ranges are based on a combination and average.

Diastatic Power
Diastatic power (DP) is a measurement of a malted grain's enzymes, which are responsible for converting the grain's starches into sugar during mashing.
PPG measures the maximum starting gravity (SG) of the fermentable in points/pound/gallon. This can differ based on your mash efficiency and the amount of wort collected.
35 ppg

Batch Max
Certain grains and adjuncts should only be used below a maximum percentage of the grain bill. Exceeding this can cause off flavors or poor mash efficiency.
