Weyermann CARAFA Special Type 1 per pound
Weyermann® CARAFA® Special Type 1 is a dark-roasted specialty malt made from high-quality spring barley. Where malt-based bitterness is not desired, Weyermann® CARAFA® Special Type 1 is a perfect fit. As the de-husked version of CARAFA®, it produces rich color, body, flavor and aroma without the harsh flavors and astringency typical of dark-colored grains. This malt will add notes of espresso with chocolate and coffee flavors to darker styles, with a slight, roasted aftertaste.
Add to dark styles at a rate of up to 5%
Note: Sold by the pound.
