carastan malt
« on: August 02, 2012, 06:38:41 PM »
From what I understand this is a British Crystal Malt that is 30-37 L. Is this correct? Would simple crystal 30 be a reasonable replacement for Carastan?

Working on a clone of Twilight by Deschutes and they list Carastan as one of the malts used. Any input. My plan is to bitter with Northern Brewer, Cascade at 30 and Amarillo at 10 and flame out while shooting for 35 IBUs and 5% ABV
On Tap/Bottled: Hazy IPA, Pumpkin Festbier, Berry Belgian Cider, Pilsner                

Fermenting: Imperial Brown Lager, Brown Lager
Up Next: Red Rye Ale, Black Lager

Yes, I would use c-30, especially if it is British.
