    2-Row Carapils® Malt; Briess

    Very low color or flavor contribution. Characteristics & Applications: • The endosperm is completely glassy and will appear to be darker than standard Brewers Malt. • Carapils® is a very unique dextrine-style malt that adds body, foam retention, and beer stability without influencing color or flavor. • Use to upgrade all types of beer, including light colored beers. • The non-fermentables in Carapils® are very advantageous in balancing body and flavor of dark colored beers. • May be used with or without other specialty malts. • Low usage of 1-5% will help achieve desired results. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 2-Row Malting Barley varieties.

well balanced, a lot of citrus and floreal notes in the smell and in the aroma, not too bitter, a really good IPA. As usual for my beers it's a little dark for the style, but it doesn't matter too much I did 6 days of secondary with Columbus/centennial and chinook 1oz each.
