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.
Our organic malts are made from barley grown without using man made fertilisers, pesticides, growth regulators, irradiation or through genetic modification. With inevitably wider specification than non organic malts, beers made from organic ale malt will appeal to consumers seeking to uphold their organic values.
