Briess Carapils® Dextrine Malt is a unique specialty malt used for recipe adjustment when more body is desired without any additional color or flavor/aroma. Dextrins are large sugars that cannot be fermented, converted into ethanol and CO2, by brewing yeasts. The effects of more dextrins in a finished beer are improved mouthfeel and head retention - foam stability. Carapils® is a completely converted malt, meaning it is suitable for both All-Grain and Extract brewers as it only requires steeping to be used effectively. For more information on various malts and grains, take a look at Byron Burch's Guide to Malts and Grain.
Note for Sour Beer Brewers: Dextrins can be broken down by many wild yeasts and bacteria. Adding Carapils to a recipe will allow you to carry out a clean primary fermentation with a normal saccharomyces cerevisiae strain while leaving dextrins for Brett/Lacto to consume during the secondary souring.
