Working with one of the UK’s largest producers of oat based products we have sourced a wider range of products for use during brewing.
Using oat flakes in your brew will add a creamy smooth mouthfeel to your beers because of the high concentration of beta-glucans. 5-50%, a wide range of use in various beer styles, 5-10% for an oatmeal stout, or anything from 15-50% for a New England style, it is recommended to experiment and find what works best for your recipe and personal taste.
These are rolled to a finer setting of 20, which produces a smaller flake than a breakfast oat, size is closer to that which you would see being used for the popular children’s oat cereal that used to make kids glow on the way to school.
There is no need to select a crush on oats as we will always provide these whole and uncrushed.
Its is recommended to add an amount of oat husks to your grain bill to allow for better flow and prevent the risk of a stuck sparge.
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.
