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!
The New England IPA style embraces haze with the addition of ten percent Naked Oat Malt. These provide, body and turbidity but we utilise our polyphenol free malt to reduce the likelihood of oxidative darkening of the beer in package.

Clear Choice® base malt will prevent oxidative darkening of this beer style during shelf-life.
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.

Crisp Naked Oat Malt has become a stalwart of the NEIPA recipe. We malt naturally naked oats to increase potential extract. Naked Oat Malt gives a lovely creaminess and mouthfeel in all styles of beer and is especially suited to juicy hop bombs and heavy beers. They also impart a toasted, biscuit aroma and palate.
Oats are high in β-glucan and for both brewing and baking uses Naked Oat Malt can contribute beta-glucans (soluble fibre) to add an extra property.
If run-off is a concern at higher addition rates, mix 50/50% with our Flaked Torrefied Oats.
