Since 1870 we’ve lived and breathed malting. With this passion and expertise, and by combining traditional and modern techniques, we create an impressive range of malted and non-malted products, including several unique and exclusive barley malts.
We have a wide range of malts suitable for brewing and distilling to provide you with the foundations for creating your next beer or whisky.
From our traditional floor maltings to our state-of-the-art packaging line, all of our malts are processed by a team of skilled maltsters. Find out more about our different processes here.
Our team of maltsters and brewers have put together a number of different technical materials, from recipes to blog posts on conditioning, to assist you in your brewery or distillery. Find out more here in this section.
There is nothing more we love than talking to brewers and distillers so if you have any questions, or would like to arrange a call with a member of our team, please feel free to get in touch – we would love to hear from you!
This classic Golden Ale recipe is all about showcasing hops without any caramel sweetness. The Cara Gold achieves the golden colour without any caramel sweetness but also lends the beer some body and a rounded mouthfeel despite the dry finish. Perfect on cask, for a quaffable summer ale.

Our Best Ale Malt is the workhorse of many a brewery and is at home in a variety of beer styles. The 2-row winter barley varieties that go into our Best Ale have been planted in the light, sandy soils of North Norfolk. We source the lowest nitrogen barley from our farmers.
During malting, high cast moistures and a balance of optimal germination time and temperature results in an even, well modified malt with a rich colour and balanced sweet, malt flavour which is ideally suited to ale brewing.

Cara Gold Malt is the lowest colour of the crystallised malts. Cara Gold yields fruity, and toffee flavour notes that are carried through to the beer.
This low malt colour produces a golden orange lager with increased body and fullness and a softer, rounder mouthfeel with improved drinkability.
