1KG Gladfields Pale Ale Malt

Priced per 1KG - available in increments of 1g

This barley has been malted by independent maltings, Gladfield Malt of Canterbury. Chances are the barley was grown on Gladfield Farm too.

Gladfield Ale malt has very similar attributes to the Pilsner malt but only winter grown English bread 2 row varieties are used. The malt is fully modified through a traditional long cool germination.

This is a highly friable malt but again the soluble nitrogen ratios are kept relatively low to enhance mouth feel and head retention. The kilning regime gives a nice toasty character with enhanced maltiness for dark ales. This can be toned down for a cleaner malt profile for a lighter hoppy pale ale by adding small amounts of Pilsner malt.

A single step mash of between 66' and 68'C is sufficient to avoid any lautering problems and obtain good extract however multi step mashes may improve extract potential and improve stability in the bottle. Mash pH should be adjusted correctly to achieve brew house efficiency.
