Carafa Special I Malt

In Stock

Produced with German grown two-row spring barley Carafa Special is the de-husked version of Carafa malt. Using Weyermann's unique process, they remove the husks from carefully selected grains before malting and roasting them. This reduces astringency and bitterness, while adding coffee-brown colour, a coffee-like bouquet, dark beer aroma, as well as body and mouth feel to finished beer but without introducing harshness. Even small amounts of Carafa Special malt in the grain bill produce dark beers of unusual smoothness and mildness with a firm, creamy, white head.

Carafa Special is ideal for Lagers, Dunkel, Doppelbock, Ales, Dark, Stout, Schwarz and Altbier styles.

Carafa Special comes in three colour options: Carafa Special I, Carafa Special II, Carafa Special III
