Carapils has a clear, glassy endosperm and contributes unfermentable sugars that add foam stability, and palate fullness to beer. Use up to 5% to improve body and significantly enhance head retention without adding flavor or color to your beer.
However it can also be used at a higher rate in special cases, say if you are making a Session IPA, and are trying to simulate a higher gravity beer. Because of its extremely light color and neutral flavor it won't have much affect on the final color or flavor of your beer. Carapils belongs to a category of malts labeled as Dextrine, sometimes Dextrin, malts. We mention this because you might see either of these names in your recipe.
