Hi All,

I walked into my LHBS a few weeks ago and asked for some light crystal malt. They gave me some 18-21L Weyerman Carahell. I searched the wiki and couldn't find carahell anywhere. What am I to expect from this specialty malt?

Thanks,
jkpq45

Take a look at this. "hell" essentially means "light" (as in color) in German. So you got exactly what you asked for.;)
