Produced with German grown two-row spring barley Carafa® Special is the de-husked version of Carafa®. Using Weyermann's® unique process, they remove the husks from carefully selected grains before malting and roasting them. This reduces astringency and bitterness, while adding coffee-brown colour, a coffee-like bouquet, dark beer aroma, as well as body and mouth feel to finished beer but without introducing harsh. Even small amounts of Carafa® Special malts in the grain bill produce dark beers of unusual smoothness and mildness with a firm, creamy, white head.
