Malt sensory analysis
Although malt tasting is not currently any part of the malt specification, it does offer possibilities to differentiate both positive and negative flavours. Conventional malt analysis may suggest that malts are identical however their flavours could well differ significantly.
We use a method to fully describe the profile of malt using a ‘porridge’ made by grinding whole malts with a small amount of water which helps in the tasting process.
The malt flavour wheel has allowed us to create distinct flavour profiles for the wide range of malts and malted ingredients we produce.
Craft is a winter barley variety taking the place of Venture in the Muntons range and is a natural replacement for other winter varieties such as Pearl and Halcyon. Craft Pale has the most malt-forward flavour profile of all Muntons pale malts and produces a smooth and sweet wort with notes of toffee and strawberry.
