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!
Dave Griggs joined the malting industry in 1990 after completing an Honours degree in Industrial Biology and a PhD in plant biochemistry. His first role was Senior Research Scientist at Pauls Malt. Over the intervening years Pauls Malt evolved into Greencore Malt and subsequently Boortmalt which led to roles covering most aspects of the malting business from raw material through operations to brewer and distiller end use. This included some time working in Russian malting plants in the early 2000’s.
Dave joined Crisp Malt in 2013 as Technical Director. Key responsibilities are many and varied, but encompass liaison with plant breeders concerning new variety testing, technical malting projects, barley and malt quality control and quality assurance, customer technical support, and increasingly, passing his knowledge and experience onto the next generation of maltsters, brewers and distillers.
Dave is an IBD Diploma Brewer, a MAGB Master Maltster, has chaired the UK Malting Barley Committee, is a Malting Diploma examiner and author of a number of technical malting articles.
