    Gladfield Munich malt is germinated similar to the Vienna malt using slightly higher nitrogen barley to create more intense colour through greater maillard reactions. This is achieved with a kilning regime that includes higher levels of moist air recirculation during the early and intermediate stages of the kilning cycle followed by high final curing temperatures. The resulting malt is rich, sweet, toasty and biscuity with a touch of breadiness.
    This malt is ideal for darker style Lagers or Ales and high alcohol beers.

    Gladfield Vienna has a kiwi twist but still has the normal characteristics of typical Vienna malt. The germination and kilning allows a sweeter maltier character with out over doing it. It is ideal for darker lagers or Marzen style beers. The Gladfield Vienna goes well with Gladiator and Toffee giving a big white head and lovely golden red lager for that drinkable session beer.

    Gladfield's American Ale malt is the answer for brewers who have found that Gladfield regular Ale malt will add too much of a malty and toasted flavour profile to certain beer styles. This malt starts as all our other base malts do with a traditional long cool germination period. What separates it from the standard Ale malt is a newly developed a kilning recipe that favours colour formation typical to an Ale malt but with a clean malt profile and without the extra toasted flavours. This malt has been a favourite for producing popular hop-forward American style beers for which it was named.

    Gladfield Ale malt has very similar attributes to the Pilsner malt but only winter grown English bred 2-row varieties are used. The malt is fully modified through a traditional long cool germination. This is a highly friable malt but 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 64° and 67°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.
    EBC 5 to 6

    For 1kg of Bairds Golden Promise, use 1kg of Gladfield Ale malt instead
