Well here is my dilemma, I'm wanting to brew this in few days but my two local shops do not have 'Carafa III' .
Shop #1 wants to substitute it with "Debittered Black Malt (Belgium)"
Shop #2 wants to sub with Carafa II
So what do you think is best? Would either substitution require change to the amount (0.50 lb) needed?

Thanks for any help!
Robert

The debittered black malt is basically the same thing as dehusked Carafa III. It's definitely a better sub than Carafa II, which is lighter in color.

Will Cascade work in place of Amarillo hops due to the shortage of Amarillo?

I used nugget for the magnum and a combo of cascade and centennial for the amarillo...haven't done a side by side yet but the beer is fantastic.

Thanks much ipsiad! So I picked up the De-bittered Black Malt and the rest of the needed ingredients today. Looks like I'm now all set to brew this next week!

Now if I can figure out how to add Breiss Midnight Wheat & Simpsons Crystal Rye to the BeerSmith grains list %@#!@%#!

You can get Amarillo right now if you really want it.

Yeah I think a combo of cascade and centennial would work but I was able to get Amarillo (leaf & pellet) at both of my local brew shops yesterday.

Ah, could you look and tell me the profile settings to put in? I have all the grain 'Add-ons' loaded in BS but still isn't there, disappointing.

Thanks,
Robert
