Default Carafoam %?

Howdy,

How much % of the grain bill should I add for Carafoam... It's my first time using it and right now I'm looking at 2%.

What do you think?

Cheers,
LS_Grimmy

I'd use it like Carapils. Add 1/2-1 lb. for a 5g AG batch and 1/2 lb for extract.

Malt - CaraFoam
GR451
Contributes the same to your beer as CaraPils does - body, etc - but with a slightly sweet flavor. A few breweries are switching to this malt in place of CaraPils. Definatley lends a more interesting flavor.
