Crisp Premium Peated Malt
Crisp Premium Peated Malt
$5.95Kg - $23.80/5Kg (SAVE 20%) - $89.25/25Kg (SAVE 40%) / $1900/MT (SAVE 65%)

Historically, Scottish Malthouses used peat as the fuel for kiln-drying malt, which added a phenolic flavour to the dried malt. Crisp continue this tradition in their modern malting plant in Scotland; where they control the introduction of peat smoke during the kilning phase. This gives Crisp Premium Peated Malt the distinctive flavour that characterises many of the west coast Scottish island whiskies.

Great piece of equipment. Mixes up my yeast starters. And has a heater as well if you want to heat up the starter if need be. Totally recommend this.

Healthy fermentation starts with healthy yeast and making a starter is key to getting off to a flying start with your next fermentation.  Simply place your yeast propagation flask on top of the stir plate and drop in the stir bar. Switch on the machine and adjust the spin speed.

Crisp Flaked Torrefied Rice
Crisp Flaked Torrefied Rice
$5.95/1Kg - $23.80/5Kg (SAVE 20%) - $89.25/25Kg (SAVE 40%) - $2,500/MT+GST

Darren James (DJ), Senior Brewer Bath Ales – United Kingdom
“We use flaked rice in our new English Lager Sulis with great results. Using it we are able to create a lager that is very light in colour, clean, crisp, medium bodied and slightly dry in finish. Crisp flaked rice helps bring out all these flavour profiles without imparting strong flavours or adding colour. The rice adds a smooth, clean body and mouthfeel with a dry finish too, making Sulis very easy drinking.”

Crisp Flaked Torrefied Rice consists of rice grains that have been cooked at high temperature, resulting in gelatinisation of the starchy endosperm, and then flaked.

Crisp Flaked Torrefied Rice lightens wort colour, reduces protein levels and imparts a characteristic dryness to finished beers.

Flaked Torrefied Rice does not require milling before being added to the mash.

Insist on Crisp Flaked Rice in your Light Lager or Brut IPA!
