Big O – Malted Oats

 

Big O- Malted oats are a great addition to use instead of a rolled or flaked product. Whole oats are fully modified and kilned to give a rich oat, nutty flavour. Big O Malted Oats have a few great attributes that make a preferred product for Stouts and Hazy IPAs. They have a large, thick husk which greatly aids in sparging and run-off. They have much more flavour – kilned to enhance the nutty, oaty flavours and bring more to the table than a flaked product. They bring the same silky smoothness to a beer that a rolled oat will. Big O provides a better haze than rolled oats alone in your Hazy IPAs. Some brewing notes: The oats and husk will absorb more water so be prepared to increase the amount of your strike water. Mix the oats with the barley during milling to help deliver an even crush.

Black Forest Rye

 

Think of Shepherds Delight Malt, now open your mind to the possibility to brew a beer with the same great attributes that Shepherds Delight Malt offer (red colour, malty, currant and fruit cake flavours) using Rye as the grain. The possibilities are huge. Add spiciness to Old Ales, add complexity to ESB, Pale Ales, you name it.And guess what, no one in the world produces anything like this malt, so you are you in for a treat.

Chit Malt

 

The term chit in malting represents the first stage of germination, where the barley has taken up enough moisture from steeping to start the magic process of turning starch into soluble sugars to feed the yeast during fermentation. Chit malt has a particularly high level of inherent starter enzymes, which contribute significantly to improving the conversion of starch, thus increasing the yield. The reason that the Chit Malt can improve body and foam is due to the process of modification of the starches in the grain by the enzymes still in the early stages when we start kilning this malt. It will leave long protein chains in the malt that the yeast won’t be able to digest its entirely during fermentation. This malt is a good alternative for raw
adjuncts. The flavour impact in a beer is minimum with subtle green, grassy raw grain flavour. As Chit malts contain mostly high-molecular proteins and sugars and thus retain many of the green, grassy characteristics of raw grain. One of its main purposes is to improve the finished beer’s body and foam stability.

Gladfield Naked Oats

 

Our take on a well sought after type of malt. Our Golden Naked Oats is made from New Zealand dehulled oats, chitted and then roasted on our roaster “Gabriella”. This malt brings mouthfeel and creaminess to malt forward and hoppy beers, essentially any type of beer can benefit from some amount of Golden Naked Oats.
Colour – 2.8 EBC.
Rate: Up to 10%
Packaging options: 1kg, 5kg, 25kg.
Shelf life: At least one year when stored properly in dry conditions.

Go Nutty – Roasted Oats

 

Go Nutty – Roasted Oats is our newest malt, launched as a limited release in 2020. We used hulled oats which have been roasted in our drum roaster to a lightly nutty, toasted flavour while still retaining a light colour in the mash. It resembles the flavour of toasted sesame seeds. This malt is a great addition to Stouts, Porters and Brown Ale. It could add spiciness to Saisons and Dubble beers too.
Usage rate of up to 20%. Colour – 8.5 EBC.
