    Caramalts are used to give colour and flavour to pale Lager beers but should be used with care to avoid making the beer too dark or giving it too cloying a flavour. They also change the oxidation - reduction state of a beer, and can therefore improve the stability of a beer by preventing the formation of oxidised (cardboard) flavours.

    Bairds Heavily Peated Distilling Malt

    (bulk product - please select amount on product page)
    This is a bulk product - one unit equals 1kg.

    Peated malt is used by some malt distillers to impart a smoked or peaty flavour to their spirit. This type of malt may also occasionally be used as a very small inclusion in brewers’ mashes to produce beer with a smoked character.
    Peated malt is made using exactly the same production regime and barley as (plain) distilling malt during kilning. The peat smoke is absorbed onto the surface of the drying malt which, when processed, imparts the smoked peaty flavour to the finished product.

    Bairds Pale Crystal

    (bulk product - please select amount on product page)
    This is a bulk product - one unit equals 1kg.

    Crystal is prepared separately from pale malts. They are high-nitrogen malts which are wetted and roasted in a rotating drum before kilning. They produce strongly sweet toffee-like flavours and are sufficiently converted that they can be steeped without mashing to extract their flavour. Some of the sugars in crystal malts caramelise during kilning and become unfermentable; hence, addition of crystal malt will increase the final sweetness of a beer. They contain no enzymes.

    IOB - 80 to 100
    EBC - 90 to 110
    ASBC - 45 to 55

    (bulk product - please select amount on product page)
    This is a bulk product - one unit equals 1kg.

    Aurora has been developed to produce rich bready, fruit cake aroma and orange/red colour. It has a long traditional germination process to create complex sugars and amino acids which react during a careful kilning regime. The resulting maillard reaction is responsible for the colour and flavour. It is ideal for dark ales, Belgium style and high alcohol beers. If you want to make that big malty, rich beer then this is a great malt to use along with Crystals and Red Back.

The evenness of colour is achieved by using the latest technology in malt roasting and heat recirculation.
