Bairds Heavily Peated Malt 55 lbs Bag
55 pound (25 kg) bag of Heavy Peated Malt Smoked over peat moss for a soft sweet, earthy smoked character. Peated malt is used by some malt distillers to impart a smoked or peaty flavour to their spirit. This type of malt may also occasionally be used as a very small inclusion in brewers' mashes to produce beer with a smoked character. Has standard level diastatic properties. Peated malt is made using exactly the same production regimes and barley as (plain) distilling malt. The main difference is that peat smoke or 'reek' is introduced into the air drying the malt during kilning. The peat smoke is absorbed onto the surface of the drying malt which, when processed, imparts the smoked peaty flavour to the finished product.
