Grain in the fields

'CaraPils' is the brand name for a Dextrine Malt produced by Briess. Because it was the first dextrine malt on the market, and its wide availability, it is sufficiently well-known that some resellers label other dextrine malts as 'cara-pils' as well, despite it actually being a trademark. As with other dextrine malts, it is used to increase foam, head retention, and body.
