    American Ale Malt

    Base Malt

    Gladfield’s American Ale Malt is perfect for brewers who have found that our regular Ale Malt adds too much of a malty, toasted flavour profile to certain beer styles.
    This base malt has been made from plump low protein Autumn barley varieties and then subjected to our traditional long cool germination period. The grains are then kilned using a special recipe that imparts a typical Ale colour for a cleaner,
    less toasted flavour. When brewed, this malt produces a vibrant, clean, yet solid hop‑forward malt profile and is perfect for producing American-style beers. The American Ale Malt offers the brewer scope for innovation and the ability to create beers that are full of character and sophistication.

    Use: Base malt for use in hop-forward beers.
    Rate: Up to 100%
    Packaging options: 1kg, 5kg, 25kg, 500kg, 1 tonne bags and bulk.
    Shelf life: At least one year when stored properly in dry conditions.
