Warminster Base Malts

Which Base Malt should I use?

The Base Malts are the real body of beers! From the ‘malt forward’ Maris Otter malts, to the clean, lighter flavour of Low Colour Springs and Lager malts, these are the ultimate source of fermentable sugars, enzymes and nitrogenous compounds.

Warminster Malts, Their Characteristics and Contribution.

Here at Warminster Maltings, creating our malts the very traditional way, we offer 7 Base Malts, all with quite individual characteristics and flavour, which make them the perfect choice for Craft Brewers, both big and small.

All of our Base Malts are stringently monitored, from ‘ex farm’ grain selection through to final analysis in our fully equipped laboratory. Provenance is guaranteed, and customers can expect every order to be delivered perfectly fresh.

Warminster Maltings - Maris Otter Malt

Maris Otter Standard Colour

The very best base malt for English Ale or lighter beers has to be Warminster Maris Otter Standard Colour.

The perfect ingredient for ‘malt forward’ Pale Ales. It’s unique rich malty flavour also exhibits the ‘Delia’ factor – it is very easy to brew with, and forgiving! It is consistent, and delivers pronounced clarity.

Uses: English Ales.

Warminster Maltings - Pale Ale Malt

Pale Ale Standard Colour

A more economic choice of malt for English Ale would be Warminster Pale Ale Standard Colour.

This is “The Jack of All Trades” malt, and will generally give a slightly higher extract and enzymic activity than ‘Otter, but with less pronounced flavour. It produces a well rounded wort.

Uses: English Ales.

At lower levels of inclusion, Wheat Malt improves head retention and mouthfeel.

It provides the distinctive flavour and the mouth feel of Wheat Beers.

Uses: At low levels – Ales.

At 50-80% – Wheat Beers/Weissbiers.

Warminster Maltings - Rye Malt

Rye Malt

Warminster Rye Malt has a limited demand, more for inclusion in Ales than for Rye Beer.

As a contribution to the mash, this adds hints of toffee/caramel, and produces a spicy after palate. Rye Malt also aids head retention, and gives beers a more reddish hue.

It provides the distinctive spicy notes typical of a Rye Beer.

Uses: At low levels – Ales.

At up to 50% – Rye Beer.
