The Ingredients

When we talk of 'Pale Malt' we are usually referring to the Maris Otter Malt used in most of our recipes. Maris Otter is a variety of barley and has one of the best reputations as a pale ale malt.   

We stipulate for our Maris Otter Malt to be floor-made.

However, there are other malts which are pale in colour. As they have not been roasted they have their enzymes active and are capable of performing their own conversion of starch to sugar; the enzyme activity of the coloured maltsr, has been destroyed by roasting.

Apart from the Maris Otter, the other pale-coloured malts used in the brewery are Mild Ale Malt and Wheat Malt.
