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

Used some of this to make an Irish red and have plans for the remainder to make an all grain brown ale.
I usually do a 70/30 split MO to 2row. Adds a nice taste and color to the beer
I almost always make an RIPA (Rye IPA) and use Marris Otter as the base malt. There are two or three types available from Northern Brewer. All are excellent.
