Thanks for the link. I have been looking for some good descriptions of different malts. I have some books, but nothing with to much detail. Am I to understand that the prefix "cara" is short for caramel? Would this mean that this is a style of malting barley? Is the difference between these two malts similar to the difference between Cara-Vienne and Vianna malt? I am searching the web for some good resources on different malts.
For head retention, i usually add a little bit of wheat to my beers.
