As we approach 2018, here is some advice relating to the transition to new crop malt:

Please be aware that pale ale was fully new 2017 barley crop from blend PA 17-123 and Maris Otter was new 2017 barley crop from MOPA 17-39. Both are being shipped out to customers from mid-December onwards.

Customers should bear in mind that with any new season’s malt, brewers should consider re-optimising their processes to achieve the specification and process efficiencies required:

  • Mashing regime-temperature
  • Copper finings optimisation – see how to do that on this download HERE.
  • Conditioning regime-finings optimisation-both auxiliary and conditioning (isinglass or equivalent) - for details, download more information HERE.

Please speak to your Brewers Select sales contacts for any further details or advice.
