anyone else try this? I'd like to brew a black IPA, might try this with a little less pale malt to bring down the abv a bit.

But why use Carafa? Wouldn't 1/4lb or 1/2lb of Roasted Barley give you a better roast character? Do you really get enough out of the Carafa?

Carafa III Special is the malt of choice for all the commercial brewers who make this style of beer. I can't find it at my LHBS, so I improvise, using a mix of black patent, roasted barley, and chocolate malt.

Carafa Special is dehusked and gives less roast character. For a Black IPA you are trying to minimize the roast flavor. Otherwise you get more of a hoppy stout. I had to order it from an online vendor since I could not find it at my local store either.

I am still drinking this Sept batch from the bottle and it has gotten better with age. A friend says it is the best beer I have ever brewed... lol. He is a hop-head of course.

I brewed this 2 weeks ago and just racked to the carboy for dry hopping. Tastes awesome even before the dry hop. Itching to try it when it is done.
