Gladfield - Ale


Gladfield Ale malt is made from Autumn grown 2-row barley varieties. The malt is fully modified through a traditional long cool germination. Only plump low protein barley is used which allows for a higher extract potential and helps eliminate haze issues in the beer. 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 traditional ales. It is important that mash pH is controlled properly to obtain the best efficiencies and desired outcomes. Base malt for many beer styles with distinct English character
