Malts & Grains

All our malts and grains are suitable for both full grain brewing and as an addition to a beer kit. Some grains must be mashed, others can be steeped. Refer to the description included with each grain. If your recipe calls for a specific brand and/or type of malt not listed here, please refer to the Brewing Grain Substitution Chart to find a suitable substitute.

B17041 - SABM Black Patent Malt 500-600°L (1kg)
A deep, dark, fully roasted malt that, if used properly, can lend a very dark colour and intense toasted flavour to dark beer styles such as stouts and Schwarzbier, and can be used to limit the sweetness of other styles that contain a lot of crystal malt. Typically imparts a highly roasted flavor, as well as some bitterness and acidity, and gives deep contrast to a round malty beer. Use sparingly! If used in excess, black malt can lend a very sharp, acrid, burnt (sometimes even ashy) flavour with a harshness far beyond that of both chocolate malt and roasted barley. Can be either steeped, or mashed along with other malts. Can be used as a substitute for any black (patent) malt, including Carafa type III. (Also available in a 250g bag - enquire with us.)
B12226 - Weyermann Caraamber Malt 23.1-30.6°L (1kg)
This light to medium crystal malt intensifies the aroma and color of darker beers, particularly German Alt, stouts, bocks and porters, but can also be a good ingredient for a variety of English and Belgian ales. This is a crystal malt which can be steeped and does not need mashing (but can be mashed along with other base malts).
B12224 - Weyermann Carahell (Light Crystal) Malt 8.1-11.8°L (1kg)
Crystal malt is essentially pale malt which has undergone a heating and "stewing" process to convert some of the starches into sugars inside the kernel, which are then caramelized into longer chains that are not converted into simple sugars during mashing. This results in a more malty, caramel-sweet, fuller tasting beer. Light Crystal malt can add sweetness, fullness and roundness the the flavour of any beer style. This is a crystal malt which can be steeped and does not need mashing (but can be mashed along with other base malts). Can be used as a substitute for Briess Crystal 10 malt, Muntons Carapils, Fawcett Caramalt, Castel Cara-Blonde, Baird Carastan, and similar malts.
B12227 - Weyermann Caramunich Type I Malt 30.6-38.1°L (1kg)
This light to medium crystal malt (not to be confused with the Munich base malt) has a deep gold to pale copper colour. It adds a sweet malty flavor and aroma to a variety of beer styles. This is a crystal malt which can be steeped and does not need mashing (but can be mashed along with other base malts). Can be used as a substitute for Crystal 30 malt.
B12228 - Weyermann Caramunich Type II Malt (41.8-49.3°L (1kg)
This medium crystal malt (not to be confused with the Munich base malt, with which it has nothing to do) is one of the most popular crystal malts. It has a deep colour and adds a mild toasty and sweet flavour to a variety of beer styles. This is a crystal malt which can be steeped and does not need mashing (but can be mashed along with other base malts). Can be used as a substitute for Briess Crystal 40 malt, Dingemans Caramalt 45, Fawcett 40-50 Crystal malt, medium caramel malt and similar malts.
B12229 - Weyermann Caramunich Type III Malt 53.1-60.6°L (1kg)
This medium crystal malt is one of the most commonly used caramel and crystal malts. Not to be confused with the Munich base malt, with which it has nothing to do. It adds a measurable sweetness and caramel flavor to a variety of beer styles. Well suited for many English, Belgian and American style milds, porters, stouts and bitters, and is often used in small quantities to adjust the flavour and colour balance of just about any type of beer. This is a crystal malt which can be steeped and does not need mashing (but can be mashed along with other base malts). Can be used as a substitute for Briess Crystal 60, Medium Crystal malt, Fawcett Dark Crystal type 1, Medium Caramel malt and Caramel Munich.
B12042 - Weyermann Carapils (Dextrin) Malt 1.7-2.4°L (1kg)
Dextrin malt gives a fuller body and mouthfeel to light beer styles (e.g. Pilsner, lager or Bock) and significantly improves head formation and retention. Use in small quantities (typically 3-5%), as it can cause a cloying, sugary sweetness if used in excess. This is a crystal malt which can be steeped and does not need mashing (but can be mashed along with other base malts). However, when steeped this malt may introduce unconverted starches in the wort. Most of these may disappear during boiling, but your mileage may vary. Replaces (and improves on) the older CaraFoam malt, and can be used at a substitute for any dextrin malt including Briess Dextrine.
B12225 - Weyermann Carared Malt 15.6-19.2°L (1kg)
Carared is a light dark crystal malt, for any beer in which a reddish color is desired, such as Scottish Ales, Belgian ales, a variety of English ales, and Bocks. It also provides a full body and a nice, malty aroma to the beer. This is a crystal malt which can be steeped and does not need mashing (but can be mashed along with other base malts). May be used as a subsitute for Briess Crystal 20, Castel Cara-ruby or Castel Biscuit malt, and Cara-vienne.
B15230 - Castel Cararuby Malt 16.7-21.9°L (1kg)
Cara Ruby malt imparts a rich caramel-sweet aroma and a toffee-like flavour, adding light amber to reddish colour to beer. Improves mouthfeel, head, head retention, and extended beer stability.

B15043 - Castel Chocolate Malt 400-450°L (1kg)
A deep dark-brown, roasted malt that adds a distinct bitter-sweet "chocolate" flavour with nutty and toasty notes to the brew. Less bitter, less toasty and slightly less dark than black malt. Use sparingly for brown ales, and more extensively for porters and stouts. Add to pale malt according to recipe. This is a crystal malt which can be steeped and does not need mashing (but can be mashed along with other base malts). Can be used as a substitute for any chocolate malt, as well as for Carafa II. (Also available in a 250g bag - enquire with us.)
B14152 - Bairds Dark Crystal Malt 90-120°L (1kg)
This British crystal malt is roasted to a dark finish without having the "toasty" bitterness characteristic of chocolate or black malts. Excellently suited for dark ales, porters and stouts.

This is a base malt which must be mashed. Can be used as a substitute for Briess Victory malt, Pauls and Fawcett Amber malt, and Aromatic malt.
B12047 - Weyermann Munich Malt 6.9-8.8°L (1kg)
A rich, golden malt that provides a modest colour increase toward a nice, golden-orange tint. Adds a pronounced grainy, malty flavour to many beer styles without affecting the foam stability and body. Also used in small quantities in combination with Pilsener malt to produce light coloured beers, improving the malty flavour and giving the beer a richer colour. Enhances the taste of character beers. Used in pale ales and in amber, brown, strong and dark beers in quantities up to 60% of the total grain bill. Can be used as a substitute for any brand of Munich Malt. This is a base malt with a relatively low diastatic power which must be mashed in combination with other malts.
B12222 - Weyermann Pale Ale Malt 2.6-3.4°L (1kg)
Pale Ale malt, not to be confused with regular pale malt, is an excellent basis for a variety of ales, especially British styles. A little darker than regular pale malt, it has a slightly fuller, nuttier and maltier taste, which lends great character to pale and brown ales, porters and similar styles. This is a base malt which must be mashed.
B17048 - SABM Pale Malt 1.5-2.5°L (1kg)
Pale malt forms the basis of just about any beer, and usually makes up the bulk of the grain bill.

Pilsner malt has a more prounounced, sweetish-malty flavour than pale malt, and is usually a bit lighter in colour. It can be used as a base malt or combined with pale and other malts for pilsners and lagers, and is often an ingredient of many European beers, especially German and Belgian styles. This malt can be used as a substitute for any brand of Pilsener malt, as well as for Bries 2-row pale malt, Muntons lager malt, and Fawcett lager malt. This is a base malt which must be mashed.
B15050 - Castel Roasted Barley 410-450°L (1kg)
An intensely roasted unmalted barley that adds a dry, toasty bitterness, body and mouthfeel to dark beers (typically dry stouts). Use sparingly. This is a crystal malt which can be steeped and does not need mashing (but can be mashed along with other base malts).
B12051 - Weyermann Vienna Malt 3.2-3.9°L (1kg)

Yeasts

Yeast plays an important part in the formation of a beer's flavour profile. While the yeasts supplied with our beer kits are excellent, they are designed to be robust and forgiving, which comes at the price of a more neutral flavour profile. Using a specialized yeast for a given beer style will generally result in a better beer. However keep in mind that with specialized yeasts the fermentation temperature is more critical than with the yeasts supplied with our beer kits.

In order to be able to offer these imported yeasts to our customers at affordable prices, some or all of the yeasts on offer here may have been repacked from bulk, under sterile conditions in multi-layer barrier foils and under vacuum or inert gas, thus preserving quality and purity.
