Brown malt

Postby lov2cook4u » Wed Aug 31, 2005 12:48 pm

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone knows where I can find true brown malt. I know I can roast pale malt. I also have made it by giving the malt a light smoke in my smoker before. But I want to find a company that makes a traditional brown malt from "green" malted barley. I wanted a malt that was dried in a wood fire kiln? So if you guys know anyone making this specialty malt please let me know. Otherwise I may set up a system to make my own malt? See ya all... Scott

Brown Malt Manufacturers...

Here are the remaining producers of traditional Brown Malt available in the US:

Crisp Maltings, LTD: 3.0% Moisture, 60-90 Lovibond, 76.5% Extract, Fine Grind
Thomas Fawcett & Sons, LTD: 3.0% Moisture, 55-70 Lovibond, 71% Extract, Fine Grind

You could also buy raw barley and produce it yourself. Most homebrew suppliers will not have this though, so you may have to find an alternate source. One option would be to cozy up to a pro brewer and have them order a bag of it along with their regular grain order. It is on my price sheets from Cargill Maltings.
Make your next beer (or spirit) a local one!!!!
