Good looking beer. Wow that’s a lot of carapils! I’ve never used more than a few ounces.

Did you decoction mash it? Very nice color.

Polar still availble. But not so much at the moment no did a regular. Fly mash. Did mash for 60 min

Looks delicious and nice pour @wilcolandzaat. I too thought that was a ton of carapils but it is a 10 gal batch.

I brew mostly 10 gal batches and only use 3-4 ounces of carapils. My main reason for using it is to help head retention and lacing.

I only brew 5 gal batches and would normally use 5-6 ounces per batch for same reasons as @dannyboy58 but I haven’t used it lately in my NEIPA’s. Not sure how using too much would affect the taste but I guess I could save a few cents per batch by lessening the amounts.

Carapils is dextrine malt. Doesn’t really impart any flavor or color. No need for it if you do a decoction mash.

It’s less than 4% carapils that’s fine

That’s a good lookin recipe to me
