Pauls Malt – Mark 5 Medium Crystal Malt
Less sweet than light crystal, with stronger roasted taste. We produce this malt at our Pauls Malt Ltd. plant in Knapton, North Yorkshire, UK. Malting Barley with a high germinative energy and low nitrogen, that has undergone steeping and germination, is stewed in a roasting drum, where the endosperm liquefies into a sugary solution and crystallizes during kilning to a glassy sugar.
Traditional British malts lean toward more doughy, biscuity characteristics and lend themselves to malt-forward ales and lagers. This is ancestral home to the beloved Maris Otter variety of barley used in so many classic beer styles associated with English pubs.
