Maris Otter Malt (Pale Malt) - Crushed
British Maris Otter (MO) is a 2 row winter barley.
Try taking it whole & crushing it yourself for maximum efficiency of extract & contribution.
Pale Malt (MO) is the main ingredient of many English Pale Ales and Bitters, but a high proportion is used in the production of most other English beer styles.
It is fully modified and has been kilned at a low temperature for a long period to reduce its moisture content to about 3%.
Pale malt has good diastatic activity, and so it can be used to assist in the conversion of a certain amount of non-diastatic grist.
Several varieties of barley are used with MO, but traditionally it is the most highly prized as it is a very forgiving variety, providing a good flavour and extract.
MO was bred by Dr G.D.H.Bell in the 1950's at Cambridge by crossing the then established malting barley variety Proctor with another variety Pioneer.
