Crisp Floor Malted Maris Otter Malt

Crisp Floor Malted Maris Otter Malt

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Crisp No. 19 Maris Otter Malt (formerly Gleneagles Maris Otter) is an heirloom varietal that is World renowned for its deep, rich flavor.  It is considered Heirloom because it is an old variety with a very low yield of 1.5-2 tons per acre.  Modern varietals now produce up to 4 tons per acre.  Why do farmers grow Maris Otter when new high-yield, disease resistant varietals are available? Because Craft Brewers around the World are willing to pay a premium for the complex, authentic pub flavor that Maris Otter provides.

Please note this is the distinguished Glen Eagles version of Crisp Maris Otter. Crisp produces two types of the Maris Otter malt. A regular version malted in modern silos and this exclusive Glen Eagles version of their Maris Otter that is floor malted by hand in the traditional way. This malt is obviously great for all English style Ales but is perfectly suited for any beer where you want a rich, bready malt flavor.

My go-to base malt for all styles. If you like a maltier or more characterful ale, this is a great malt, especially for English styles. Also a good alternative to the traditional lighter, drier base malt flavors in IPAs.

Just like home cooking, home brewing is a chance to use the the best ingredients. This sounds like some pretty darn good malt.

Like the flavor, but efficiency is so-so
I've used this stuff in a few different batches. The flavor is really nice. It gives a nice, grainy, subtly sweet flavor that I really enjoy. The main drawback I've noticed is that I doesn't seem to convert as efficiently as other base malts I've used. Using my typical crush and typical mash process, I was losing about 5% or so in mash efficiency. What I've found is that I need to crush it a little more finely and I need to make sure I'm doing a full 60 min, or even 90 min mash to get the most conversion out of it.

Perfect for a variety of styles
Huge complexity, even when used in small beers. Like warm bread, lightly toasty.

A nice change
If you want your IPA's and Pale Ale's to stand out, try Maris Otter malt. I often use it 50/50 with US 2 row and it still stands out and I like to use the same recipe and see just how a different malt can make the ordinary, extraordinary.
I don't use it very often but I've found others notice the difference in a good way too. Sometimes my beers just all have the same 'house' flavor and MO gives it a nice change and Gleneagles is the top of the top for me!

Great review! We couldn't agree more with the complexity GR350 lends in normal beers, Gleneagles deserves all the praise they get for their crisp, floor malted, Maris Otter.
