[edit] Brewing with aromatic malt

[edit] General brewing information

Aromatic malt is high in diastatic power and can convert itself completely; however, because of the extremely strong aromatics it lends to the finished beer, most brewers avoid using more than 10% in a batch to maintain balance.

[edit] Beer styles

A traditional Belgian malt, aromatics are common in malty Belgian beers such as dubbels.
