Maris Otter Malt
Finest malts from the British Isles. Maris Otter is an English 2-row varietal barley introduced in 1966 that was developed specifically to produce high quality malt for the production of ale.
Its low nitrogen content, uniformly plump kernels, and robust husk has made it a favorite among English brewers for its reliable and forgiving brewhouse performance, and, most notably, because of the unique Maris Otter flavor it adds to the beer which may be absent in modern barley varieties grown for yield and ease of agricultural production.
This fine base malt will easily convert with a single infusion mash, and produce an orange tinged golden wort with a unique rich, slightly nutty flavor. An excellent malt for any English style beer. 3.5-4.5°L

Just what I wanted
I’m new to brewing but my stout turned out pretty good with this base malt. So I’m guessing it’s good. Haha.
Perfect malt for light milds and different bitters. Adds that malty, bready taste. Beer tastes just like the ones I have had in the U.K. Goes well with both English hops and American hops.
It's everything you could expect or ask for in a malt.
I have been brewing using the same partial mash process for over 20 years. I normally purchase my grain locally, combined and fresh milled. M/O is my go to base for IPAs.
The 5 one-pound packages were well sealed, but no indication of the package date. When I checked the SG of the wort before boil, I had to add a good bit more DME than I usually do to reach my target pre-boil SG (yes, I adjust for temperature and volume). I'm not sure if the grain was the issue, but I am thankful I can go back to my local shop at last.
