Company description PALE MALT - Provides the bulk of the fermentable sugar in all British Ales. Possesses sufficient diastatic enzymes to convert all fermentable maltose and non fermentable dextrins. Maris Otter, Halcyon and Pipkin are all excellent barleys from which pale malt is produced. Each has its own individual flavour and experimentation is strongly advised. LAGER MALT - Can be made from almost any brewing barley but most commonly Halcyon. It is kilned at a slightly lower temperature than pale malt to give a lighter colour and a more delicate flavour. Lager malt can be mashed perfectly well with the normal one temperature infusion mash. The difficult and time consuming decoction mash is unnecessary.
PILSNER MALT - The palest of all malts. Essential for making the finest pilsner style beers. Single temperature infusion mash is sufficient but care must be taken to ensure that complete starch conversion has been achieved. MILD ALE MALT - Produced from triumph barley, mild ale malt is kilned slightly hotter than pale malt and has a richer malt flavour perfectly suited to mild ales. Can be used to provide 100% of fermentable sugars or can be combined with dark malts. VIENNA MALT - Dried at low temperatures to avoid caramelisation then kilned off at a fairly high temperature. Vienna malt imparts a wouderful rich aroma characteristic of German Oktoberfest beers.
It can be used on its own or in conjuntion with pilsner malt to make malt accented lagers. MUNICH MALT - Unlike vienna malt, Munich malt is kilned while the moisture content is still quite high which provides for some caramelisation of the sugars as its fairly high finishing off temperature. There are insufficient enzymes for Munich malt to be used on its own, but it can comprise up to 60% of the mash if combined with high enzymee Pilsner malt to make the classic malty Munich Dunkel(dark )lagers. CARAPILS MALT - A very pale crystal malt which has no enzymes, so must be mashed with other malts. Can be used to add body to any s…
