Grains for Beermaking

MALTED GRAINS BULK . It's all  floor malted and we have regular deliveries so it's in excellent condition.. We'd recommend that you buy the crushed, all our shop customers do. If you keep it cool and dry it lasts for ages anyway. For those of you who prefer uncrushed malt we now keep whole malt in stock. Maris Otter seems to be the most popular, it's our favourite as well.
 

Click more details for the amount you wish to buy.

As always if we don't have what you want please ask, it may be in stock or we will put it into stock for you..

Most of our malts are the  two row barleys. Maris Otter and Halcyon are both two row barley malt.

Maris Otter Crushed Malt

If you just want a pale crush malt then it's this one!

This is our most popular malt and it provides the staple malt for most beers.

EBC 5 -7

Halcyon Pale Crushed malt (Pale Crush Malt)

!

Maris Otter has taken the place of Halcyon with most brews.

The flavour difference is subtle and you have to try it really.

EBC 5-7

Golden Promise Crush Malt

!

Used by Timothy Taylors amongst others Seems to produce slightly sweeter rounder beers

EBC 5- 7

Pilsner Malt Crushed

!

We're now using  Schill pIlsner malt- It's great quality and produces lovely golden lagers and pilsners.

EBC Under 2

Low Colour Maris Otter Crushed Malt

!

EBC of 3-4.5

Much paler than the normal maris for those very pale beers we're all making.

Less malt flavour and allows the intense hop flavours through

UK Lager Malt Crushed

!

Malted and crushed in the UK. A true lager malt not just a pale crush!

This is our best selling lager malt and provides the basis for most lager type beers.

EBC 3-4.5

Mild Malt Crushed

!

A true mild malt. Using halcyon grain but malted to a darker colour.

Typically 7.25 EBC with 4% moisture

Munich Malt Crushed

!

Uk Malted Munich malt

Typically 25 EBC 3.6% moisture

One of the darker pale malts if you know what I mean!

Used for the nice dark Munich beers, some of the shop customers use this malt for their bitters. It gives a nice intense maltiness

Crystal Malt Crushed

!

Crystal malt is the most poular adjunct.

If the recipe just says crystal then this is what you want

Caramel with toffee flavours, also a slight nutiiness

Colour 120 EBC moisture 4.3%

Crystal malt is often used with liquid malts as it does not need mashing

Chocolate Malt Crushed

!

Dark malt, no chocolate in it of course! It's just the colour is a nice chocolate one

Does impart a sort of chocolate flavour if you use your imagination-We'd say more of a coffee flavour

1000 EBC moisture 3.3%

Tastes like burnt toast, for dark milds and stouts.

Malt Mills for crushing whole grain

!

You'll find these in the Mashing Equipment section

Malt Mills

Wheat Malt Crushed

!
For Wheat beers ! Most recipes seem to use a ratio of 7 to 1 normal to wheat but we have used much higher ratios and got excellent results.

Roast Barley Crushed

!

This is the unmalted roasted barley, it's very dark. Almost black and has an intense flavour.

Mainly for guiness style stouts etc. But is used in old ales

EBC 1300-1600

Patent Black Malt (Black Malt)

!

Another very dark malt. Used in stouts dark milds etc

Burnt coffee to burnt toast flavour

colour EBC 1000

Torrefied Wheat

!

Torrified barley is no longer available. This is the only torrified grain we can obtain

It's been heated up very fast so it pops, you can do your own in a hot saucepan, it's fun but a bit unpredictable as to flavour, the commercial stuff tastes roughly the same each time!

Used to help the life and creaminess of the head, helps give that that lace effect in the glass

Delivery on a full sack may be a couple of weeks- please ask

EBC 3 -4.5

Flaked Barley

!

The whole un-malted barley grain rolled. This is untreated grain just rolled flat, same stuff you see in breakfast muesli. If it's healthy in cereal it must be healthy for us as well....

Adds body and helps  head retention. You only need it as about 10% of the total grain. It does need to go in with other grain in the mash.

EBC 3-4.5

Flaked Maize

!

Maize is known in the UK as Sweet Corn. It's high in sugar but produces a thin bodied brew. Used as an adjunct it adds interesting flavours to your brew.

This is the yellow maize, it's not the denatured cheap alternative which has had the sugars removed.

It 's the whole grain, it's more ground than flaked but does the same job and has a much better flavour

EBC 3-4.5

Bohemian Pilsner Malt EBC 3
