Maris Otter is an "heirloom" barley variety grown entirely on the British Isles. It is a stubborn paragon of character and flavor, trumping commercial desires for high yield and disease resistance. Though replacement barley varieties have come after, it remains the most prized British malt for an astounding depth of flavor and aroma.
Much like that heirloom malt, we have insisted upon a classic formula - 100% Maris Otter, with no added caramel malts or simple sugars, no corners cut in the name of cost. The result is a malt extract worthy of the best brewers. It is an extract of unmatched complexity, sure to bring you the "wow"s you deserve.
1.036 ppg gravity contribution, 4-5 SRM, excellent fermentability, and authentic English character - grainy, bready, and slightly nutty. Just harness this built-in malt profile to your favorite English hops and yeast (we love this syrup combined with Wyeast 1945 NeoBritannia) for a faithful “real ale” quality never before accessible to extract brewers.
