Here at Crisp Malt, we understand that the last year or so has been an unprecedented challenge for everyone involved in the consumer trade. But times are always changing and this year is looking more and more positive! So we wanted a little bit fun to get us all in the right mood for 2021! This is why we handed the power over to our customers and followers to let you choose our next Small Batch!
Small Batch malts are super special and one of our specialities at Crisp Malt, due to their very nature they are only released in a limited quantity and once they’re gone they’re gone! We create them using a very unique method, after all, what better way to encourage innovation back into our industry than to use our advanced roasting technology; Crisp’s Speciality Malt Plant.
After several hundred of you voted, the winner was revealed as, drum roll, please… Toasted Malted Oats! This special grain is incredibly unique, and we are very excited to introduce this limited edition product to you.

So, you may be wondering ‘what are Toasted Malted Oats, and how do they differ from other products?’ Well, my friends, that’s where it gets interesting! Toasted Malted Oats are produced on the only low energy, continuous flow malt roasting tower in the UK- Crisp Malt’s Speciality Malt Plant. It begins by gently toasting another of our much-loved products, the wonderfully creamy Naked Oat Malt. This process has revealed something incredible, which we’re really excited about, an Oat Malt of increased colour and intensified flavours.
Similar to our popular Naked Oat Malt, Toasted Malted Oats offer a beautifully smooth palate, with body and haze potential that easily matches its predecessor. However, Toasted Malted Oats have also uncovered wonderful aromas of flapjack and roasted hazelnuts (see flavour profile below). At higher addition rates, it can also impart a subtle golden hue to your brew.

Another similar product is Golden Naked Oats, much like Toasted Malted Oats they are roasted naked grains, meaning that they have no husk. This improves the extract process and provides haze, mouthfeel and creaminess. The main difference between these two products is that to the best of our knowledge, Golden Naked Oats are lightly caramelised (like a crystal malt), which imparts sweetness and breakfast cereal quality. Our own Naked Oat Malt more closely resembles porridge oat flavour profiles. The new Toasted Malted Oats are a roasted malt, meaning they have less sweetness but instead offer nutty toasted properties, meaning the potential for new brews is phenomenal!
To get you started, our experts here at Crisp Malt have put together a selection of recipes, which really showcase Toasted Malted Oats to their best abilities.
