Crisp Pale Ale Malt: Traditional British Base Malt

Crisp Best Ale Malt, a premium 2-row barley sourced from top-quality Norfolk-grown winter malting barley.

This exceptional base malt can be used in a variety of beer style but most commonly used in the brewing of English Ales and IPAs.

Produced from quality UK two-row barley, crisp pale ale malt is well-modified with good extract and enzymic activity.

It undergoes a slightly darker kilning process compared to standard pale ale malts such as Maris Otter.

As a result, it boasts a more nuanced flavour profile with delicate hints of biscuit or bread.

Its balanced flavour profile and slight sweetness make it a popular choice among brewers looking to add depth and complexity to their beers.

Overall Crisp Best Ale Malt is highly versatile and can be used to balance the hoppiness of beers, as well as provide a robust malty character.
