Gladfield Rye Malt

Regular price $5.45 Sale

Gladfield Rye Malt is produced from Canterbury plains, New Zealand grown rye corn. Rye does not have an outer husk so it benefits from a finer mill setting than other Gladfield malted barley. Gladfield Rye Malt is malted with the same care as all the Gladfield malts and modifies beautifully in the kiln. This malt infuses the traditional light spicy rye flavours and colour to beers and gives the drinker a clean, dry mouth feel when drunk. Note that Rye does not have a husk so it can be milled finer than other Gladfield Malted Barley and will benefit from a finer mill setting.
