Weyermann Carafa Special T3 Malt is produced from quality spring barley. Processed slowly and thoroughly in a drum roaster to attain evenly roasted, coffee-brown, aromatic kernels. It adds a deep opaque colour and complex mildly roasty flavours to dark beers with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, and bread.
Using a unique process, husks are removed from carefully selected grains before malting and roasting them. This reduces harsh flavours, astringency and bitterness, while adding a coffee-brown colour, a coffee-like bouquet, and dark beer aroma. It has flavour notes of coffee, cocoa, and dark chocolate and adds body and mouthfeel to finished beer. Even small amounts of Carafa Special® malts in your grain bill will produce dark beers of unusual smoothness and mildness with a firm, creamy, white head.
Carafa Special® is the de-husked version of Carafa®.
