These are the workhorses of the mash; the ultimate source of your fermentable sugars, enzymes and nitrogenous compounds required for producing excellent beer. They need to deliver these each and every time you brew. Crisp have a wide range of base malts to provide you with a broad palate of flavours to build your beers upon. From the malt forward Maris Otter®, through our Best Ale and authentic German Pils to our honey-sweet Clear Choice®; we’ve got a range to suit every beer style and brewing method. Try them individually or mix them up to create something unique to you.
Some base malts, including Vienna and Dextrin, are made using the conventional kilning technique as described on our Making Malt page. Using differing steeping, germination and kilning times and temperatures we can manipulate the flavours and colour formed in the malts.
