Speciality Malt

Crystal Malts, also known as Caramel Malts, are used to add colour, flavour and sweetness to beer. Gladfield’s Crystal Malts are made from lower to mid-range nitrogen winter or autumn barley varieties, that are soaked in water, germinated, left wet and then heated. This converts the sugars while they are still in the grain. We then roast our Crystal Malts in our high-tech purpose-built roasting drum making sure that the crystallisation process is even throughout. This gives a sweetness
and even colour to the final malt.
Crystal Malts have no diastatic power, so must always be used in conjunction with a base malt. Crystal Malt can be used in varying amounts and intensities to an array of beer styles to add colour, flavour and aroma to the beer.

Use: Adds a nutty bittersweet caramel flavour and body.
