Ale Malt


Base Malt

Also known as: Pale Ale Malt
Substitute Malt: Maris Otter Malt

Our Ale Malt is grown from plump, low protein Autumn barley varieties and is one of our most popular base malts. Ale Malt is highly friable but the soluble nitrogen ratios
are kept relatively low to enhance mouth feel and head retention when brewed. This Malt has been fully modified through a traditional long cool germination resulting in higher extract potential. This type of modification helps eliminate haze issues in the beer. The kilning regime gives a nice toasty character to the malt and makes it perfect
to use to brew a traditional English style.

Use: This is a base malt with a distinctly English character, suitable for many beer styles.
Rate: Up to 100%
