Grain in the fields

A robust smoky malt used in Scottish and wee heavy ales.

This malt is lightly peated and used to enhance flavor in Scottish type ales. While the malt is in the kiln, peat moss outside the kiln is gently smoked over slow burning coals allowing its vapors to drift above the malt. Peated malt is also used in the making of some of Scotland's finest Scotch.
