I've been looking for a black IPA template and thread and this is the most helpful so far. I've tried to read most of it, but I have couple questions I'd love to get some feedback on.
First it sounds like most are in favor of the late addition roast malts to import color more than roast character, true? And second the big one for me without Carafa on hand are ideas on quantities and proportions of malts I do have around including black patent, special B, and a handful of others.
Definitely not looking to make hoppy stout, just impart color and some roast character to my house IPA.
GREAT THREAD, thanks.
