To create a unique version of a Schwarzbier, substitute Chocolate Rye for a good portion of the de-husked German Carafa I Malt to achieve the proper coloration and a hint of roasted rye notes in the finished beer. To further enhance the coloration, flavor and aroma of the beer, specify de-husked Carafa III in the malt bill.
