Description

Gladfield Sour Grapes Acidulated Malt is designed to be used to adjust pH in the brewhouse mash.

Gladfield Sour Grapes Acidulated Malt is produced by encouraging lactic growth during germination from naturally present bacteria on the grain, and then washing the malt in a lactic bath using the same Lactobacillus strain, before kilning.

Reduction of wort-pH leads to a better mash, intensified fermentation, lighter Pilsner colour and improved flavor stability and beer flavour.

    I bought this grain as I knew from previous experience that the Gladfield malts are an excellent grain to use. I’m using this grain to help keep my mash at the right pH as wells as venturing into sour beers so as to not need latic acid to lower the pH. Very happy with the outcome after using these grains.
