We source this unmalted wheat from a local Organic Farm in the village of Bishopstone (6 miles from us) which is well known for the quality of its produce and responsible farming practises. As well as using in traditional Belgian brewing it makes an awesome flour for baking which is where most of their harvest goes each year.
Typically used in Belgian recipes, adds better “grainy taste” than malted wheat and a whiter colour to the final product.
This is non gelatinised and therefore does not give such a good conversion (it’s more difficult to mash) as malted wheat.
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.
