Maize Malt (Gladfield)

From $4.20 /kg

* Please Note: Maize Malt is provided pre-cracked *

Gladfield has stepped up a notch in innovation and arguability we are the first commercial maltings to malt maize in a commercial scale.

Our Malted Maize is made from New Zealand grew field corn. Maize Malt allows brewers and distillers to use it directly in the mash, without an additional gelatinisation step. A great malt to use to produce American Light lagers and pilsners to add fermentables with little colour and a unique flavour. It can also be used as the base for a corn whiskey (bourbon).

Maize adds mild, less malty flavour to beers and less body. It also provides a drier and crisper beer.

No need to adjust the mill, cook it, step mash or mill it separately. We recommend adding Rice or Oat Hulls to recipes using more than 10% of Maize to avoid a stuck mash. To get the most out of the maize be sure to keep the grist percentage at under 30% as the corn will lack the same enzyme potential as barley.

Use: Primarily suited in bourbon production but also a great addition to adjunct lagers
Rate: Maximum 30% in beers, Maximum 51% in Bourbon Whisky without the use of an enzyme

Substitutes: Flaked Maize
