Caraaroma in Dunkel

Postby wobdee » Thu Apr 07, 2016 12:42 pm

55% Barke Munich, 29/pils, 5/carafoam, 5/carared, 5/caraaroma, 1/carafa3

Looking at caraaroma for the first time in my Dunkel. Want to get some dark fruit/raison in there along with the toffee and caramel of carared. Never used the stuff before, maybe 5% is too much?

I think it has a solid home in dunkel. Not sure it's 5% thought. 2-3% of it complements 3-4% caramumich III very nicely and reduces the amount of rostmalt you need.

I went all out on a dopplebock today, with 3% caraaroma and 3% special B. It is quite tasty. I may retract my previous statement that 5% caraaroma is too much. I know I wouldn't hesitate to use 4% by itself now.

I ended up going 3/3/3 c50/cm3/caraaroma. I think it will be quite yummy.

Ayinger claims to use 5 malts in their Altbairisch Dunkel.
