Ingredients (All Grain45 L)

  • 7 kg Pale Ale Malt; Bairds Malt

    Pale Ale Malt; Bairds Malt

    Pale Ale malt forms the majority of the grist for a typical U.K. Pale Ale or Bitter beer and is made from some of the best barley available. There is an emphasis on single variety and low protein levels. The barley will be fully steeped and germinated before the green malt is loaded to the kiln. Kilning is a carefully controlled process removing moisture to a relatively low level without destroying excessive amounts of enzymes but imparting characteristic flavour and colour. Even with a diastase of only 45°L there is still enough activity to convert for example 5% of Crystal malt and 5 -10% of cooked adjunct (e.g. flaked maize). Mashing is normally at a fixed temperature of about 65°C, so modification has to be high to cope with this and a coarse grist is normally used. Many UK brewers stress the flavour benefits in the wort and glass of using Pale Ale malts produced from traditional winter malting barley varieties.

  • 0.5 kg Light Crystal; Pauls Malt

    Light Crystal; Pauls Malt

    Pauls Crystal Malts are made from a two-stage roasting process that consists of a stewing period followed by high temperature curing. By careful control of these two stages, Pauls is able to generate a range of differently colored Crystal Malts, including Light, Medium, Dark, and Extra Dark Crystal. Typically, Crystal Malts are used in brewing to add both color and sweetness.

  • 3 kg Corn Flaked (Maize)
