Carafa 3 Special Dehusked 1 lb

Origin : German

German-grown two-row spring barley. Carafa 3 Special Dehusked is the de-husked version of Carafa. Using our unique process, we 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 3 Special Dehusked malts in the grain bill produce dark beers of unusual smoothness and mildness with a firm, creamy, white head. Recommended Quantities: Up to 5% of total grain bill Suitability (beer styles): Lagers: Dunkel, Doppelbock Ales: Dark, Stout, Altbier

Not what I was expecting - but good!

I was looking to make a Beck's Dark clone. That beer was a crisp, light-bodied dark brew - similar to St. Pauli Girl Dark and Heineken Special Dark - that Inbev killed in 2016 because they'd over-invested a cidery mess called Beck's Sapphire (also discontinued). I used a light, 5 gallon Kolsch recipe with 1/4 lb of carafe special 3. The result was not Beck's Dark - but something closer to Beck's Chocolate? Tasty brew - just not what I was going for. Will definitely be reaching for this when I want chocolate notes in a bock or porter. I haven't used a malt yet that adds this much chocolate flavor - and I mashed low at 149. I can only imagine the rich, choco shot this would add when mashing at 152 or higher. Since it's dehusked, you don't get that sharp, bitter edge that comes through with roast barley or black patent.

Amazingly Delicious

I swear if chocolate vanished from the face of the earth, you could simply soak this in warm water and have amazingly rich chocolate. I love putting a little bit of this in Stouts and Black IPA style beers.
