Weyermann CARAFA Special Type 3 is a light-roasted specialty malt made from high-quality spring barley. It's carefully roasted to add an espresso-like bouquet, coffee, and chocolate flavors with a mild but noticeable roasted aftertaste. It produces opaque beer with coffee-brown color. Weyermann CARAFA Type 3 is similar to 'Chocolate' style roasted malts, and can be used in any dark lager or ale. Where malt-based bitterness is not desired, consider using Weyermann CARAFA Special Type 3. The dehusked version of CARAFA, produces rich color, body, flavor and aroma without the harsh flavors and astringency typical of dark-colored grains. CARAFA Type 3 has become particularly popular in Black IPA/Cascadian Dark Ale recipes as a major contributor to the color and malt flavor.
