Clear Choice Extra Pale

 

Clear Choice Pale Malt is new in 2022 and replaces our Extra Pale and Ale versions of Clear Choice. Clear Choice is a unique offering from Crisp Malt and is a specially selected barley variety with no proanthocyanidins; these are flavonoid polyphenols that impart astringency and also form chill haze with proteins in the final beer. After fining or filtration, the result is a super clear, shelf-stable wort with beautiful honey sweetness. This new colour spec achieves a balance between our Extra Pale and Ale colour ranges.

We also recommend using Clear Choice for cloudy beers where oxidative darkening of polyphenols is a concern. The clarity benefits of Clear Choice are not just evident in bottle, can and keg, but also help produce extremely bright cask beer too.
