Rich and smooth

Weyermann® CARAFA SPECIAL Type 3

CARAFA SPECIAL® is the de-husked version of CARAFA®. Using a unique process, the barley is de-husked before it is malted and roasted. This reduces astringency, bitterness and harsh flavours, and accentuates the rich chocolate, cocoa and coffee notes.


Weyermann® Beech Smoked Malt

This malt is carefully dried over hot, smoky embers of well-aged beech wood to achieve its characteristic complex smoky flavour, while retaining a relatively pale colour. Can make up to 100% of your grist.

Just for colour

Weyermann® Sinamar® Liquid Malt Extract

SINAMAR® is an extract produced entirely from CARAFA® roasted malt. It contributes a rich, dark colour to the finished beer but imparts next to no bitterness.
