Malting barley varieties are typically grown for five to ten years, until they are superseded by newer, higher yielding and more robust varieties. Maris Otter® however is an exception to this rule. Although there have been many varieties with higher yields and extracts, none have managed to remove Maris Otter® from its position as one of the longest surviving and best known varieties. Its characteristic taste and outstanding processability, coupled with its historic significance make this a variety likely to remain a craft brewing favourite for many years to come.
Brewers looking for extra malt flavour, should consider this traditional malt; this British staple – Maris Otter®. Introducing strong cereal, biscuit and nutty notes in beer, Maris Otter® remains one of the most popular malt varieties available for the serious craft brewer.

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.
