Gladfield American Ale Malt is here!
Gladfield American Ale malt is the answer for brewers who find the Gladfield Ale Malt will add too much malty and toasted flavour profile to certain beer styles. The Gladfield American Ale malt starts as do all other Gladfield base malts with a traditional long cool germination period. What differentiates Gladfield American Ale Malt from the Gladfield Ale Malt is a newly developed kilning regime that favours colour formation typical of an Ale malt but with a clean malt profile and without the extra toasted flavour. This malt has been a favourite for producing the ever popular hop forward American style Ales and IPAs after which it was named.
