Hi, Iam looking to find a substitute for carabohemian malt I have looked at substitute charts but it,s not mentioned I cant find any thing on line has anyone used this malt. I am going to do a Dr Smertos golden ale and it mentioned Carabohemian and I would like to be as close as possible to the real thing .

Just order Cara Bohemian, my local stocks it and I can guarantee you it has a pretty unique flavour.
First time I tasted it I thought Schwartz beer, full of bready biscuit and dark toffee flavours, very different to most crystal malts of similar colour.

Beat me to it :)

And if you can't get Crystal 80 just use about 75% Dark Crystal [90] and 25% light crystal.[40]
Depending on the colour of Crystal you have - might need more or less.

Like @MHB says the Carabohemian does taste different to Crystal but it's a reasonable alternative.
Actually the Dr Smurtos I used to make didn't have Carabohemian, but mainly Pilsner Wheat Munich and some Caramunich iirc

Thanks altone, it seems there is that many variations I could use any thing and not get it wrong, I have been going over the different recipes on this site I did,nt relies there where so many.
