Modern malt is normally produced in computer controlled silos where conditions can be manufactured to perfectly malt each batch of barley. This process produces a very consistent end product, but, Crisp No. 19 is a little different. Crisp produce this premium malt on their traditional malting floors at their Gt. Ryburgh maltings. Brewing with traditionally produced ingredients bring the romance back to beer production and makes it a truly artisan product for brewers to be proud of.
The No. 19 floor at Crisp’s Great Ryburgh maltings dates back to when Crisp began and has been producing malt virtually uninterrupted since the late nineteenth century.
Starting with superior Maris Otter® barley, Crisp malts it in the traditional way: hand turned, germinated slowly on the floors, and kilned for over three days to maximize the robust flavors associated with Maris Otter® Ale Malt. The result is a rich malt of superior quality, a true celebration of heritage and malting knowhow.
