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.
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.
