Muntons Maris Otter malt is a 2-row winter variety of barley specially bred for use in the brewing industry. It has a low nitrogen content and  high quality malt characteristics which give beers a lush, full flavor profile. It is generally regarded as having a more rich maltiness than standard American 2-row varieties that have been bred specifically for yield. Plump kernels with good husks for filtration, Maris Otter has a breadiness that goes well in British style ales, but may be used  in any recipe where more malt character and a more rounded flavor are desired.

Maris Otter is favored by maltsters and brewers alike because of ease of malting, quick maturation times, ready absorbency of water, and a reputation as being very forgiving during the brewing process. A single-infusion mash is all that is required to brew with Maris Otter. One of our favorite base malts!

Maris Otter is my favorite base malt! I like brewing English style ales, and I haven't found an English ale that this beer doesn't work well in. From English bitters and IPAs to porters and stouts, you can count on Maris Otter as a great base! Can also be used in other styles to add a bit more of a bready or nutty character. Highly recommended!
