Pauls Malt – The Lucky Squid Light Crystal Malt
Drum-roasted caramel malt brings balance to beer profile, fullness and ruby hues in color. 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.
