Extra Pale Maris Otter





This lighter version of Maris Otter is a newer malting style of the traditional English barley variety long considered the pinnacle of barley malts for use in British style beers. This pale base malt is described as malty and slightly sweet, and is easy to malt and mash due to its low nitrogen content and excellent enzymatic activity. The Extra Pale Maris Otter is perfect for achieving the classic Maris Otter flavor with a lighter finished beer. Great for malt forward IPAs.It is usual for malting barley varieties to be grown for typically five to ten years, until they are superseded by newer, higher yielding and more robust varieties. Maris Otter® however is the exception. Although there have been many varieties with higher yields and extracts, none have managed to remove Maris Otter® from its position as the best known and longest surviving heritage variety. Its characteristic taste and outstanding processability, coupled with its historic significance make this a variety likely to remain a craft brewing favourite for many years to come.





















Brewers looking for extra malt flavor, should consider this traditional malt; this British staple – Maris Otter®. Introducing strong cereal, biscuit and nutty notes in beer, Maris Otter® remains one of the most popular malt varieties available for the serious craft brewer.
