Description

Plumage Archer is the offspring of Plumage and Archer and was the world’s first commercially produced cross-bred barley. It was developed by Dr Beavan at Warminster Maltings. It had a similar impact on the brewing world as Chevallier and for many years they sat side by side, each providing their own nuance to 20th century British beers. Our brewers savour its pale colour, subtle palate and clean flavour.

Much like IPAs of old, it is at home as a supporting player to bold hop character, especially the fruity and aromatic new world varieties. It plays especially well in Hazy IPAs and it produces a delicate, fruit new make spirit for whisky.

TASTING NOTES

  • VERY SWEET, MALTY, CARAMEL, BREADY, SMOOTH

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 character!

Since 1870 we’ve lived and breathed malting. With this passion and expertise, and by combining traditional and modern techniques, we create an impressive range of malted and non-malted products, including several unique and exclusive barley malts.

We are unique amongst UK maltsters in that the majority of our technical sales team consists of brewing industry professionals. In our past lives we’ve built and run breweries, managed large and craft sites and developed new products. On our production side we have no less than six master maltsters. Backed up by a central lab team and 150 years of malting know-how we have a deep passion for the flavour and science of brewing, distilling and malting. One day you might find our technical team analysing spent draff from a distilling customer so that we can help optimise spirit yield, the next our sales team could be working on a collaboration recipe with our distributors and craft brewing customers around the world.

Home brewing is a fantastic way to produce high-quality beer of all different styles, and at Crisp Malt, we have you covered. If you’d like to try out brewing malts at home, then you’re in the right place!

We’ve partnered with our knowledgeable, approachable and trusted supplier The Malt Miller who provide homebrewers quantities of our malted barley, heritage and speciality malts. They also offer fantastic customer service and will give you all the necessary technical brewing knowledge to get the best from our malted grains.

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.

Your can order malt in 25kg sacks where we also offer the option to have it bagged in 5x5kg, by weight starting at 50g, or by building your own recipe on our Recipe Generator by the exact gram.
