Gladfield’s American Ale malt is our answer for brewers who have found that our regular Ale malt will add too much of a malty and toasted flavour profile to certain beer styles. This malt starts as all our other base malts do with our traditional long cool germination period.
What separates it from our standard Ale malt is a newly developed a kilning recipe that favours colour formation typical to an Ale malt but with a clean malt profile and without the extra toasted flavours.
This malt has been a favourite for producing popular hop-forward American style beers for which it was named.
