Flaked Barley - Briess Malting

Flaked Barley - Briess Malting

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

A great way to add body and head retention to your homebrew. Used especially for stouts, flaked barley can be used across practically all beer styles and is an essential adjunct to have around the brewhouse.

Flaked Barley adds protein for body and head retention, without adding fermentable sugars to your wort the way you would with a wheat malt, which makes is great for tweaking the body/head characteristics of a recipe without changing the rest of the grain bill to accommodate a fermentable grain. 
Add to your grist and mash just like any base malt.

BEST ANSWER: Hi Bill - Our 25lb sacks are in stock but please allow our product team 1-2 weeks to prepare the 1lb and 5lb bags.
Do you need to grind flaked Barley before adding to mash?
Kenny Parker on Mar 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello Kenny,
You don't need to grind flaked malt in my opinion. I done it before and I see no difference. If you are a bit scare of getting stuck mash. I highly recommend rice hulls. I use rice hulls in all my mashes and never had a problem. Half a pound per 5 gallons.

It was the right addition
Used it for adding a little color and smoothness to an otherwise light-colored Strong Ale. It worked admirably, though I probably only used half!

Barley dust
The bag of barley must have been roughly handled since there is a lot of ground barley dust. The grain itself is good.
