Ok I need some help on this ipa. I tried brewing this again last yesterday and all signs point toward good things. However I tuned into some grain bill details today that confused me. Grains listed as this:
Then I read this description today, of the same grains listed above:
"...from select crystal and carastan malts."
So I realized today that my interpretation of the grain bill is probably not correct. Here's what I did:
Crystal 20 4.5%
White wheat 1.5%
I swear the description above never said a word about carastan.
But what I can't get is a straight answer about what carastan is all about, you know, it's profile, other than its a British crystal malt.
So how would you interpret the above ? And what is carastan, is it crystal, is it caramel? And how is it different from carapils? Hellllp it's driving me insaner.
