EBC 4.5 - 7.0 (mash required): This winter barley is a firm base malt favourite amongst brewers. It has the rich, nutty character sought in british Ales.
Maris Otter is an English thoroughbred and this winter barley variety is still the favored choice of many UK cask ale brewers. In the field, its yield has been surpassed hugely by more modern varieties, so it has to be grown on contract for the maltster each year by selected farmers. The resulting malt is typically described as having a rich, nutty flavor. Performance in the brewhouse is predictable and consistent with excellent run-offs.
