What is a substitute for Carafoam?
The best substitute for Carafoam malt is Carapils malt. Although they have a different Lovibond range, that doesn’t affect the flavor and color too much. They are often used interchangeably by homebrewers and commercial breweries.
How is beer SRM calculated?
MCU provides a good estimate of SRM color for light beers, but starts to diverge as beer color exceeds 6-8 SRM, because light absorbance is logarithmic and not linear. For a more accurate estimate that holds for darker beers up to about 50 SRM, we turn to the Morey equation: SRM color = 1.4922 * (MCU ** 0.6859)

But they still have starches to be converted, so are considered a “base malt”. All “Cara” malts have been malted and crystalized in a way to add body and head retention.
What is OG in beer?
A gravity reading taken just prior to yeast being added, or pitched, is referred to as the original gravity (OG). The OG will provide the brewer with a good idea of the potential alcohol percentage for that particular beer.
What is SRM in beer?
Standard Reference Method (Srm) is the method for color assessment of wort or beer as published in the recommended methods of the American Society of Brewing Chemists.

What grain is honey malt?
American Honey Malt is a modern take on a traditional European-style Brumalt, also known as melanoidin malt.
