Working with one of the UK’s largest producers of cereal based products we have sourced a wider range of products for use during brewing.
Flaked Barley is unmalted, cooked, and dried barley that has been rolled into flat flakes. It imparts a rich, grainy flavour to beer and is used in many stouts, particularly Irish stouts, enhancing head formation and foam stability. It provides additional body, with a creamy, silky mouthfeel and taste. It does not have the enzymes needed for conversion so should be mashed with malted grains. Normally used in quantities up to 20% of the grain bill.
There is no need to select a crush on flaked wheat 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 when using at a high rate of the grist.
