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!
