Gladfield Ale Malt is grown from plump low protein Autumn 2-row barley varieties and is one of their most popular base malts. Ale Malt is highly friable but the soluble nitrogen ratios are kept relatively low to enhance mouth feel and head retention when brewed. This Malt has been fully modified through a traditional long cool germination resulting in higher extract potential. This type of modification helps eliminate haze issues in the beer. The kilning regime gives a nice toasty character to the malt and makes it perfect to use to brew a traditional English style darker ale. To produce a lighter hoppy pale ale, Gladfield Ale Malt can be toned down to produce a cleaner malt profile by adding small amounts of Pilsner Malt.
Use: This is a base malt with a distinctly English character, suitable for many beer styles.
