Excellent fresh product that produces great results every time!
Makes a good beer only reason for 4 star's and not 5 is I've gotten a couple of pebbles in it and can make milling a little bit of a pain in the butt. Other then that very good malt.
The batch I brewed with Carapils has the best quality head and mouth feel of anything I've made so far. It may have added some sweetness as well, though it's hard to tell since this batch was already fruity from some dry hopping using Mosaic. If you've had any trouble with getting the head retention that you like, I highly recommend Briess Carapils. One caution: you need to do a full exaction at 150-155 F with an enzyme-providing base malt. The "Cara" in the name is misleading since it's not really a caramel malt and still needs conversion from starches into sugars.
Good product, fast delivery
Carapils is pretty standard for aiding in head retention, but I'm mostly impressed with the packaging. The packaging includes a packed on date and is resealable. Being resealable is great so that I can easily use a single 1-lb package to provide a half pound for each of two batches without worrying about freshness.
