Weyermann® CARAFA® Type 1 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, and a mild but noticable roasted aftertaste. It produces opaque beer with coffee-brown color. Weyermann® CARAFA® Type 1 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 1. 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.
