Ale Malt

Base Malt
Also known as: Pale Ale Malt
Sub Malt for: Maris Otter Malt

Our Ale Malt is grown from plump, low protein Autumn barley varieties and is one of our 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.

Use: This is a base malt with a distinctly English character, suitable for many beer styles.
Rate: Up to 100%
Packaging options: 1kg, 5kg, 25kg, 500kg, 1 tonne bags and bulk.
Shelf life: At least one year when stored properly in dry conditions.

American Ale Malt

Base Malt

Gladfield’s American Ale Malt is perfect for brewers who have found that our regular Ale Malt adds too much of a malty, toasted flavour profile to certain beer styles.
This base malt has been made from plump low protein Autumn barley varieties and then subjected to our traditional long cool germination period. The grains are then kilned using a special recipe that imparts a typical Ale colour for a cleaner,
less toasted flavour. When brewed, this malt produces a vibrant, clean, yet solid hop‑forward malt profile and is perfect for producing American-style beers. The American Ale Malt offers the brewer scope for innovation and the ability to create beers that are full of character and sophistication.

Use: Base malt for use in hop-forward beers.
Rate: Up to 100%
Packaging options: 1kg, 5kg, 25kg, 500kg, 1 tonne bags and bulk.

Aurora Malt

Base Malt
Also known as: Honey and Melanoidin Malt

Gladfield’s Aurora Malt is an aromatic malt which has been developed to produce rich bready, fruit cake aromas and imparts an orange/red colour to the brew. If you want to make that big malty, robust beer, then this is a great malt to use. The barley has undergone a long traditional germination process followed by a
carefully controlled kilning regime to create a reaction between the complex sugars and amino acids. The resulting Maillard reaction is responsible for the colour, flavour and aroma of our Aurora Malt. This malt is ideal for brewing dark ales, Belgium styles, and high alcohol beers. Crystal Malt will add sweetness to Aurora Malt and further enhance the bready and fruitcake aromas. RedBack and Shepherds Delight malts bring out the red colours of Aurora and also introduce complementary flavours to the finished beer.

Use: Aurora Malt adds a rich malt flavour to beers.
Rate: Up to 100%
Packaging options: 1kg, 5kg, 25kg.

Big O – Malted Oats

Sub-Base Malt

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.

Biscuit Malt

Speciality Malt
Also known as: Amber Malt

Gladfield’s Biscuit Malt is made by gently roasting kilned-dried Ale Malt. Our Biscuit Malt is ideal when used in small amounts to give a dry, toasted biscuit finish to light, mild ales and bitters where brewers do not want to add much colour. We recommend our Biscuit Malt in beer styles that call for a dry finish. ESB, Pale Ales and Mild Ales are styles that come to mind. Typical usage rates are 5–15% and are mindful that Biscuit Malt has a typical colour of 65 EBC.

Use: Add Biscuit Malt to impact a dry toasted biscuit flavour without adding much additional colour to the final beer.

Chit Malt

Speciality 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.

Rate: Up to 15%
Packaging options: 1kg, 5kg, 25kg.

Chocolate Malts

Speciality Malt

Brewers are often wary of using Chocolate Malts because they are often associated with imparting bitter, harsh and astringent flavours. These flavours are formed when the husk is burnt during the roasting process. At Gladfield Malt, we have perfected a unique process that keeps the husk moist during the roasting process which limits these bitter and astringent flavours from
forming. Gladfield’s Chocolate Malts are still darker malts, but impart smooth roast flavours to the brewed beer.

Light Chocolate Malt

Gladfield Light Chocolate Malt is a lighter version of our Dark Chocolate Malt. It is produced in a similar way but roasted to a lower temperature and has a lighter colour. This malt gives fantastic roasted and espresso coffee like flavours. A great addition to Stouts and Porters.

Use: Adds coffee, chocolate and roast flavours.
Rate: Up to 15%

Dark Chocolate Malt

Gladfield Dark Chocolate Malt is dark in colour and light on astringency due to our unique roasting technique. It has lovely coffee/chocolate aromas and is a big hit with Porter and Stout drinkers. This malt must be used fresh.

Crystal Malts

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. It is important to note that our Crystal Malt must be used fresh to get the best results.

Light Crystal Malt

Use: Adds mild sweet caramel flavours and body.

Eclipse Wheat Malt

Speciality Malt
Also known as: Midnight Wheat

A bitterless black malt, Gladfield’s newest malt is the best way to add the smoothest dark brown/black colour to your beers without accompanying bitterness and with a
very subtle flavour contribution.
Consider Eclipse Wheat as the blackest colour malt. Use for many styles when you want to adjust for colour, while adding a delicious minor roast coffee note. You can
use this in applications where you’re looking for similar colouring characteristics as Roasted Barley without the dark espresso character or potential astringency that can
sometimes come from very dark barley malts. Eclipse Wheat is huskless and will not carry bitterness into your beer. Use in higher proportions to make your black IPAs, Porters and Stouts blacker; adjust colour on your Belgians, Ales and Milds; and add depth to your Schwarzbiers. Use in place of debittered black malt and dehusked barley malts. The subtle and smooth flavour means Eclipse Wheat is suited for a much broader range of applications than other roast malts or chocolate malts. Including bringing the darkness to uncommon styles like Lagers, Wits and Saisons.

Use: 1–2% for little to no flavour contribution, minor colour adjustment; 2–6% to add more colour with very smooth roasted coffee and chocolate notes; 7–10% in a larger ratio for more definite colour adjustment, velvety-smooth subtle
roast character.
Packaging options: 1kg, 5kg, 25kg.

German Pilsner Malt

Base Malt

Newly developed from an old world style malt, our German Pilsner Malt is the perfect base to use with Ales and Lagers. We start with high nitrogen, plump spring barley that goes through our traditional long germination process, followed by a light kilning. This malt is designed to lauter well as well as provides a solid extract. It also allows the brewer to add in flavour and manipulate this final result. We call it here at the
maltings, the ‘marshmallow malt’, sweet but no flavour. The higher protein barley will maintain a lot of medium chain proteins that provide
both body and head retention. The flavour of this malt is crisp, clean and refreshing with a lovely pale straw colour. Recommend to use this malt when brewers are looking for a clean, non‑biscuity flavour to the finish of the beer. Typical Bohemian style pilsners.

Use: Base malt for any beer style, light in colour with a clean sweet flavour.

Flaked Barley

Harraway’s Flaked Barley is produced much like their rolled oats. Raw barley is steamed and then pressed through a pair of rollers. Flaked barley can also be added directly to the mash with base and speciality malts.

Flaked barley also performs well as an adjunct in German style pilsners, as it can produce lighter colour without lowering the gravity.

Munich Malt

Base Malt

Our Munich Malt is perfect for brewing classic malty continental lagers and
robust ales. Gladfield’s Munich Malt is germinated using barley with a slightly higher nitrogen content to create more intense colour through greater Maillard reactions. This is
achieved by allowing higher levels of moist air recirculation and low temperatures to occur during the early and intermediate stages of the kilning c ycle followed by a final long high temperature cycle. This kilning process results in a malt which is rich, sweet, toasty and imparts a
biscuit flavour with a touch of breadiness. Our Munich Malt imparts a deep orange colour and a malty, toasted, nutty, grainy flavour to the brewed beer.

Use: Munich Malt is a base malt suitable for brewing German-style beers, or when a dry toasted nutty flavour is required.

Pilsner Malt

Base Malt
Also known as: Pale and/or Lager Malt

Gladfield Pilsner Malt is made from English and European bred barley varieties. Only plump low-protein barley are used to make our Pilsner Malt. This style of barley produces higher extracts and helps eliminate potential protein haze issues in the
beer. Our carefully controlled kilning gives a clean malty character without adding too much colour. Pilsner or Lager Malt can be used to produce ales as well as lagers. This malt does have sufficient diastatic power to convert the addition of 10–20% coloured malts to the mash, but it is not designed for large amounts of unmalted adjuncts. Brewers should also note that it is important that the mash pH is controlled properly to obtain the best efficiencies and outcomes in the finished beer.

Use: As a base malt for any beer style. It is light in colour and imparts a sweet, clean flavour when brewed.

Speciality Malt

RedBack Malt is a unique malt made by Gladfield Malt. This malt is prepared using a special process before going into the roaster, and then roasted until Maillard reactions occur. The wort colour is bright with good clarity but most importantly is a lovely red hue. RedBack Malt gives a lovely malty dried fruit and toasted flavour to the finished beer. The wonderful red colour is added to the beer without imparting an opalescence
that can occur with other similar malts. RedBack Malt is also u sed to increase body and head retention in the finished beer due to the lower modification level and saccharification in the roaster. It can be used up to 15%, and complements a range of base malts.

Use: RedBack Malt adds malty, dried fruit and toasted flavours as well as a red hue.
Rate: Up to 15%
Packaging options: 1kg, 5kg, 25kg.
Shelf life: At least one year when stored properly in dry conditions.

Rolled Oats

Harraway’s Jumbo Oats are a versatile adjunct that we offer alongside our malt range for our customers convenience. These wholegrain oats have been rolled into flakes that can then be added directly to the mash with base and speciality malts. Rolled oats are also effective for adding body to low alcohol beers.

Rye Malt

Sub-Base Malt

Our Rye Malt is produced from locally
grown rye corn. Rye does not have an
outer husk so it benefits from a finer
mill setting than our malted barleys. The rye is malted with the same care as our other malts and modifies beautifully in the kiln.

Use: Gives colour, spicy flavours and a clean, dry mouth feel.
Rate: Recommend starting with 10%, can then be increased up to 50% for more rye flavour.
Packaging options: 1kg, 5kg, 25kg.
Shelf life: At least one year when stored properly in dry conditions.

Chocolate Rye Malt

Speciality Malt

Richly roasted to bring a smooth
espresso creaminess to your dark beers with a touch of rye spiciness. Beautiful in a porter or oatmeal stout where the coffee spice character is particularly well
matched with the roast malts. Adds a
further level of complexity to Vienna Malt in a Dunkel, or even something a little uncommon to a mild or English brown.

Use: Enhance aroma and flavour characters without imparting bitterness or astringency.
Rate: Up to 1-5%
Packaging options: 1kg, 5kg, 25kg.

Crystal Rye Malt

Speciality Malt

Wetting the rye and carefully roasting
produces a remarkably delicious and
complex crystal malt with a slightly spicy caramel finish and a nutty aroma. Superb in a range of beers including Pales and IPAs. Brings a new level of complexity to Golden Ryes and is fantastic in a rye lager where a little spiciness changes things up rather nicely.

Rate: Up to 25% but as with all ryes consider adding a few rice
hulls as the ratio increases to assist
lautering efficiency.
Packaging options: 1kg, 5kg, 25kg.
Shelf life: At least one year when stored properly in dry conditions.

Shepherds Delight Malt

Speciality Malt

Shepherds Delight is a unique malt made by Gladfield Malt. Shepherds Delight Malt has a concentrated or intense deeper flavour than our Aurora Malt. It will provide a potent bready, toasted, cola flavour with a lingering
fruity sweetness and red hue to the brewed beer. This malt should be used sparingly because it gives a powerful malt flavour to the beer similar to a decoction mash. Using too high a concentration of this malt could lead to bitterness in the final beer.
We recommend combining Shepherds Delight Malt with our Vienna Malt to give a balancing sweetness.
Beers made with Shepherds Delight favour from allowing to age for few weeks so flavour mellows out.

Use: Provides a malty, toasted, cola flavour and a deep red hue to beers.
Rate: Up to 10%
Packaging options: 1kg, 5kg, 25kg, 500kg and 1 tonne bulk bags.
Shelf life: At least one year when stored properly in dry conditions.

Sour Grapes Malt

Sub-Base Malt

Gladfield’s Sour Grapes Malt is designed to be used to adjust pH in the brew house mash. Sour Grapes Malt is produced by encouraging lactic growth during germination from naturally present bacteria on the grain, and then washing the malt in a lactic bath using the same Lactobacillus strain, before kilning.
As a guide, 1% of this milled malt will drop mash pH by 0.1. It can also add a mild lactic sourness to the brewed beer. We recommended between 1% and 5% of our Sour Grapes Malt is used to achieve target mash pH.

Use: Use to lower mash pH.
Rate: Up to 5%
Packaging options: 1kg, 5kg, 25kg.
Shelf life: At least one year when stored properly in dry conditions.

Supernova Malt

Speciality Malt

Supernova Malt is a unique malt made by Gladfield Malt. Supernova Malt is a 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%.

Use: Adds toasted, caramel, nutty flavours to a beer.
Rate: Up to 25%
Packaging options: 1kg, 5kg, 25kg.
Shelf life: At least one year when stored properly in dry conditions.

Toffee Malt

Speciality Malt

Toffee Malt is a unique malt made by Gladfield Malt. We make this unique malt by taking a lower to mid-range nitrogen winter or autumn barley variety, roasting the resulting malt at very low temperatures, and then
caramelise the malt. The low temperature and slower roasting produces a malt with a very light colour, a chewy consistency, with honey or toffee flavours. Our Toffee Malt is very popular. Not only does it add a wonderful malty, honey toffee flavour to lighter coloured beers but it also enhances beer stability, body and mouth feel. Because of its high moisture content, we recommend that brewers mill the Toffee Malt mixed with other malts to avoid clogging the malt mill.

Use: Toffee Malt adds toffee and honey flavours and has a low colour impact.
Rate: Up to 25%
Packaging options: 1kg, 5kg, 25kg.
Shelf life: At least one year when stored properly in dry conditions.

Vienna Malt

Base Malt

Gladfield’s Vienna Malt is made using a blend of winter and spring barle y varieties with a higher nitrogen content. Our germination and kilning results in a sweeter,
malty character with a golden to orange colouring that is slightly darker than our Ale Malt. Vienna Malt imparts hints of toasts or biscuit malt aromas and flavours to the finished beer. Due to its light colour, Vienna Malt is very versatile and compliments a wide range of other malts. Our Vienna Malt has a Kiwi twist but still has the usual characteristics of typical Vienna Malt and is ideal for brewing darker lagers or Märzen style beers. We have found our Vienna Malt combines particularly well with our
Gladiator Malt and Toffee Malt, and gives a big white head and a lovely golden colour to make a very drinkable session beer.

Use: Vienna Malt has a sweet malty character and light toast malt flavour. Perfect for
brewing a Vienna lager or a Märzen style beer.
Rate: Up to 100%
Packaging options: 1kg, 5kg, 25kg.
Shelf life: At least one year when stored properly in dry conditions.

Wheat Malt

Sub-Base Malt

Gladfield Wheat Malt is produced from an old English wheat variety that modifies very well, resulting in a higher yield. This malt gives clean light coloured wort. Wheat Malt can be used in many beer styles to add head retention, body and a wheat malty flavour to the finished beer. All the wheat grain that we use on our Wheat Malt is single sourced from the Birkett Family from Leeston, Canterbury.

Use: For making wheat beers and to add body and head retention.
Rate: Up to 70%
