Maris Otter - Extra Pale Ale Malt
Malting barley varieties are typically grown for five to ten years, until they are superseded by newer, higher yielding and more robust varieties. Maris Otter® however is an exception to this rule. Although there have been many varieties with higher yields and extracts, none have managed to remove Maris Otter® from its position as one of the longest surviving and best known varieties. 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 flavour, 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.
