Ok heres another question. what is the deal with this grain. i assume it is similar to chocalate malt just not as roasted.

I figure it would have the same chocale flavour but without the bite. I was thinking of using this in a brown ale instead of the chocolate malt.


While im at it..... :p what is the deal with caraamber. Is this just a caramel Amber malt. Similar in all ways only crystal.

How about caraaroma and carafa special can someone out there give us a description, i'm sur im not the only one to wonder what this is? :chug:

Wedge, Amber malts have a signiture biscuity flavour/aroma and are nothing like Chocolate malt. Call it a very mild roast.
