Carafa Special II Malt
Produced from quality spring barley. CARAFA SPECIAL® is the de-husked version of CARAFA®. Using their unique process, they remove the husks from carefully selected grains before malting and roasting them. Reduces astringency and bitterness, while adding coffee-brown color, a coffee-like bouquet, dark beer aroma, as well as body and mouthfeel to finished beer but without introducing harsh flavors. Even small amounts of CARAFA SPECIAL® malts in the grain bill produce dark beers of unusual smoothness and mildness with a firm, creamy, white head. Has Notes of coffee, cocoa and dark chocolate.
Use: Adding coffee brown colour and bouquet.
Rate: 5 to 10 % of grain
