Grains

One of the main ingredients in beer is malt, the sugar that is found in germinated barley grains. There are a range of different malts, each lending their own character to the finished beer.

Darker malts, such as black malt and chocolate malt, are suitable for very dark beers like stouts and porters. Lighter malts, such as amber malt, crystal malt and pale malt, are used for paler bears, such as lagers, pale ales and lighter-coloured bitters.

Our grain is usually supplied ready crushed. Uncrushed grains will need to be crushed with a grain mill, before use and can be ordered on request.
