Crisp’s heritage malt, Plumage Archer is a predecessor or the ever popular Maris Otter. It fell out of favour as it has a much lower yield per acre than more modern varieties making it less attractive to grow. However, the resultant flavour has never been in question, just try Govinda by Cheshire Brewhouse
Our Friend Shane Swindells has been brewing with heritage malts and whilst we can give you tasting notes such as “Very Sweet, Malty, Caramel, Bready, Smooth” somehow Shane has a more eloquent tone. Check out what Shane has to say below, he is quite a characher!
Malt is the backbone to any great beer recipe, ensuring you have the best quality freshest malt can really improve your brews.
Our malt comes from the same maltsers that professional breweries use. All of our malt is purchased whole/uncrushed, which ensures that it retains the correct moisture levels as the maltster intended.
When you order malt from The Malt Miller we offer it crush fresh, or whole so you can crush it fresh at home using your own mill, or fine crushed for Brew In A Bag brewing. When we crush it for you it is done only when ordered, this ensures you can be sure of freshness and also receive the correct mix of big and small particles.
