Gladfield Crystal Rye Malt 5 kg


Gladfield Crystal Rye Malt is made from wetting the rye and carefully kilning which produces a remarkably delicious and complex crystal malt with a slightly spicy caramel finish caramel and a nutty aroma.

Gladfield Crystal Rye Malt is superb in a range of beers including Pales and IPAs and brings a new level of complexity to Golden Rye beer styles and is fantastic in a Rye Lager where a little spiciness changes things up rather nicely.

Use up to 25% but as with all Ryes consider adding a few Rice Hulls as the ratio increases to assist lautering efficiency.

Please use the malt as fresh as possible and see our suggested recipe below for a for a delicious Golden Rye.
