What's the difference (other than color) between Weyerman CaraAroma and Dingemans Aromatic?
Try about 15-20% carared.
I'm trying to identify the malt that would give my red ale the deep red color and rich, dark dried fruit / burnt sugar flavor that I see in Mad River Brewing's Jamaica Red Ale:http://www.beerclubguide.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Jamaica-Red-Ale.jpgI've tried 7% Crystal 120 and 3% Crystal 40, and that didn't get me there. Do you think CaraAroma is the ticket? If so, what percentage would you use?

That sounds like Special B, which gives a nice red, especially combined with a 120L crystal malt like CaraAroma. Maybe about 1/2 pound each per 5 gallons, a'la Ken Lenard's Home Run Red.

It's closer to a base malt in terms of fermentability.
