  1. Hi there. I did a batch last week and its almost ready to bottle. as i always do when i take a reading i always have a taste. when i did i noticed it has a bit of a sweet taste to it. i have just found out its from the crystal malt grains i added to it. would i notice the sweet taste much when it is carbonated? has anyone had an experience like this. the recipe i used was. 1kg light liquid malt 300grm crystal malt cracked 15min on simmer then added to wort. coopers dark ale. 500grm dextrose 300grm dried corn syrup US04 yeast is it the crystal malt grains i have added to make it sweet. what other grains could i add to my beer to give it taste, but not taste sweet. has anyone added coffee beans to beer and if so what extract did they use and what was the recipe i am about to make a stout with the above ingredients but are opting out now with the crystal malt! thanks
