Mike'S TOP TIP

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

Malts used in this Recipe

Clear Choice Pale Malt

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.
