Pauls Malt – Reliable Lighthouse Chocolate Malt
Bitter coco-like accents with coffee undertones. We produce this malt at our Pauls Malt Ltd. plant in Knapton, North Yorkshire, UK. Light chocolate malt is produced by roasting kiln-dried malt to temperatures of up to 220°C. Water is used to extend the roasting time and for quenching and cooling at the end of a roast to prevent combustion.
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.
