Craft is a winter barley variety taking the place of Venture in the Muntons range and is a natural replacement for other winter varieties such as Pearl and Halcyon. Craft Pale has the most malt-forward flavour profile of all Muntons pale malts and produces a smooth and sweet wort with notes of toffee and strawberry.
Craft is an excellent choice for malty and high-alcohol beers like old ale, strong ales, barley wine, American and British-style amber ales, porters, or stouts. In New England IPAs where a superior malt backbone is desired, Craft is a great choice. Craft’s underlying flavour pairs nicely with London III and Vermont Ale yeasts. It works exceedingly well in malt-forward Blonde Ales that are popular with drinkers new to craft beer. Use this malt with light-coloured specialty malts like Amber Malt and/or Caramalt 30 in a beer with less than 25 IBUs to make an approachable, entry-level Blonde Ale.

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.
