    Gladfield Munich malt is germinated similar to the Vienna malt using slightly higher nitrogen barley to create more intense colour through greater maillard reactions. This is achieved with a kilning regime that includes higher levels of moist air recirculation during the early and intermediate stages of the kilning cycle followed by high final curing temperatures. The resulting malt is rich, sweet, toasty and biscuity with a touch of breadiness. This malt is ideal for darker style Lagers or Ales and high alcohol beers.

    Gladfield Raw Wheat

    (bulk product - please select amount on product page)
    Just as malted wheat is crucial to Germany’s wheat beers, unmalted, raw wheat is essential to several Belgian styles. Raw wheat produces beers less sweet and full bodied than those made with malted wheat, making it an excellent choice for the more crisp and refreshing styles.

    Witbier, the Belgian version of “white” beer, is likewise made from unmalted wheat (50 percent) and malted barley (along with an occasional addition of oats). Witbiers can be brewed from step infusion or decoction mashes, but long protein rests (45 to 60 minutes) are necessary to allow any lautering at all.
    Can be used for baking bread if you have a flour mill!
