SIMPSONS DRC® Roasty, toasty and with a sweet aftertaste.
Beer Styles: Pale Ales, British Strong Ales, Belgian Abbey
Malt Flavour: Heavy Caramel, Subtle Taste of Plums & Raisins
Due to its unique production process, Simpsons’ DRC® can be used to substitute darker roasted malts in Dark Beers where the astringency and bitterness inherent to roast malts is not desired. This means that it can be used at a higher rate in the grist to add complex caramel and dried fruit notes with a beautiful red-brown hue.

“ At Russian River we use multiple types of Simpsons Malt. They have a depth of flavour that enhances the mouthfeel on our beers, especially those that are lower in alcohol. Simpsons Malt have some of my favourite malts to brew with.”
Vinnie Cilurzo, Owner/Brewer, Russian River Brewing Company
Since 1862, when James Parker Simpson founded his first maltings in Alnwick, Northumberland, Simpsons Malt has been a family business. Today, the 5th generation drives the brand forward, together with father, Simon Simpson OBE. And, as an independent, family-run business we invest in those areas of the business where we see room for improvement or innovation.
Simpsons Malt operates two maltings in the United Kingdom, which combine to produce more than 250,000 tonnes of malt per year that is delivered across the globe.
Both maltings are strategically located in prime barley growing regions in the north and south of the country and serve our diverse range of customers in the distilling, brewing and food industries.
Whether you’re a brewer looking to add a certain special something to a new and innovative beer, or a distiller on the hunt for an infinitely complex and subtle taste, as specialist malt suppliers we’ve got the perfect range of malts to meet your needs.
Our malts are renowned for their exceptional taste and flavour, with the care and attention-to-detail we display during our processes helping to craft high-quality malts for some of the world’s best brewers and distillers.
But that care doesn’t just start when the grains of barley arrive at our malting sites. With an agricultural merchanting division, McCreath Simpson & Prentice (MSP), built into the business, it starts right back with seed supply and production at our seed plant.
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.
