Walts Product Range
Barley is the most common grain used in the production of beer, barley malt contains high levels of enzyme content to convert starch into fermentable sugars.
Malt (for beer) is divided into three categories base malt, specialty malt and roasted malt. Base malts provide suitable diastatic power to convert their own starch and additional starch from specialty and roasted malts. Specialty and roasted malts have little or no diastatic power, but provides flavour, colour and body to the finished beer.

We follow basic malting steps such as:
1. Grain intake – from farmers and silo operators
2. Storage – by season by cultivar
3. Cleaning – removing dust, stones, awns from the grain
4. Steeping – to uptake and distribute of moisture and washing some microorganism, tannins, protein, acid, dust and loose particle from the grain
5. Germination – to produce enough enzymes (starch, protein degrading and cytolytic enzymes) and to limit rootlet growth.
6. Kilning – to stop the biochemical and biological processes, to produce specific aromas and flavours.
7. Deculming – to remove rootlets causing bitter taste.
8. Storage – quality control before dispatching.
