Top quality Norfolk-grown 2-row winter malting barley is widely recognised as the best raw material for traditional ale malt. Low protein barleys are sourced from local farmers who are in partnership with Crisp Malting Group through the ABC Grower Group and are qualified as the very best malting barley growers.
During malting, high cast moistures and a balance of germination time and temperature guarantee an even, well modified malt which is ideally suited to ale brewing.
The characteristic higher colour and balanced sweet, malty flavour results in this malt being one of the most popular and distinctive malt styles. Crisp Malting Group Best Ale Malt is suited to infusion mashing and top fermentation which typifies traditional ale brewing, but is also very well suited for ale brewing using more modern techniques.
