Weyermann® CARAFA® Type 3 is a dark-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 noticeable roasted aftertaste. It produces opaque beer with brown/black color. Weyermann® CARAFA® Type 3 is similar to 'Chocolate' or 'Black' style roasted malts, and can be used in any dark lager or ale.  CARAFA® Type 3 has become particularly popular in Black IPA/Cascadian Dark Ale recipes as a major contributor to the color and malt flavor.

Where malt-based bitterness is not desired, consider using Weyermann® CARAFA® Special Type 3. 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.
