    Gladfield has now released a mild Peat Smoke malt, with phenol of 4 ppm. Peat smoked malt is particularly suited to porter/stout, but it works really well in strong British styles, such as Wee Heavy and Old Ale. It's also a great addition to any high ABV dark beer destined for aging, but should be used in moderation.

    Gladfield Flaked Barley

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

    Flaked Barley is barley grains that have been steamed and rolled to gelatinize their starches, making them accessible for conversion to sugars. Because the grain is un-malted, it does not possess the enzymes required for this conversion by itself and it must be mashed with malted grains.
    Flaked barley adds a rich, smooth, grainy flavor to your beer. It is high in protein and beta glucans. As a result, it will improve the body, head formation and retention of your beer. However, it can also increase the haze potential.
    Flaked Barley can be up to 20 percent of your grist.

  7. Gladfield Roasted Barley
    $5.10/kg

    Gladfield Roasted Barley

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

    This product is used in the production of dry or bitter Stouts and other dark beers, or for the careful adjustment of Pilsen beer colours.
    Roasted Barley, as the name suggests, is made from unmalted barley. It has a slightly darker colour than our Gladfield Chocolate Malt range and is ideally suited for use in a Dry Stout. Roasted Barley adds a lovely rich roast flavour and dark espresso like flavours to brewed beer. Like all roasted malts, it should be used fresh to get the best out of it.
    A different, slower roasting temperature profile is used but the final temperature is 220°C or even higher, which is achieved by allowing the exothermic roasting reactions to continue after turning off the heat source. The reaction is stopped by quenching with water. Because of the high temperature at the end, colour pick-up at this stage is very rapid and extreme care is needed to prevent carbonisation.
    Because the roasting process is slightly different from that used for Roast malt and a higher final temperature is used, the balance of pyrazines to pyrroles is different, with there being more pyrazines present in this product. This leads to a more bitter flavour and the use of the material in the so-called bitter Stouts. With extreme care it can also be used to colour and flavour Lager beers, but the quantities used are very small, certainly no more than 0.2 or 0.3% of total grist.

  8. Gladfield Supernova

    Gladfield Supernova

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

    Supernova malt is a new roasted malt from Gladfield that adds nutty, toasted caramel flavours to a beer. It can be used as a replacement for traditional crystal malts to change the flavour characteristics and reduce the beers residual sweetness. We start this malt with Canterbury winter barley and take it through our germination process before it is roasted to develop flavour and colour.
    This is a great malt to be used in any beer style. We have already seen it used in Pilsners and IPAs between 10 – 25%. We also recommend its use in an Amber Ale up to 25%, it adds a rich depth of malty flavour and really makes this style shine. It goes well in a Porter up to 10-15%, complementing the darker roast malts and adding complexity. Also great for Pale Ales for great toasty caramel flavours that won’t overtake the hops, use 5-10%
    Colour: Typical 114 EBC
