I'd like to make a Cascadian Dark Ale /Black IPA like the Stone Sublimely Self Righteous or the Black Brutal Bitter, but I can't find any Carafa III Special locally and it's too expensive to ship for me.

Is it possible to use chocolate malt or black patent malt and achieve a similar result? Some folks have mentioned cold-steeping, and I've seen some Black IPA recipes on this board using chocolate malt.


Any ideas?

Got access to any de-bittered black? I've substituted that for Carafa special before and it was fine. I have also heard of people using chocolate/black patent late in the mash to get color and reduce some of the bitterness.

Thanks, Austin!

I ended up just steeping one pound of black patent for 10 minutes at 160 degrees. I got all the color I needed and the beer just tasted like a normal IPA.

So you didn't get any of the darker malt characteristics that you would see in a Stone Sublimely Self Righteous or Widmer W'10 Black IPA?

I only ask because I am not brewing this just to add a dark color to a normal IPA.
