HOW IT IS MADE
We produce this malt at our Pauls Malt Ltd. plant in Knapton, North Yorkshire, UK. Malting Barley with a high germinative energy and low nitrogen, that has undergone steeping and germination, is stewed in a roasting drum, where the endosperm liquefies into a sugary solution and crystallizes during kilning to a glassy sugar.
270 -350 EBC. The Shell Shocker imparts a deep ruby brown hue. Rich in reducing sugars, it provides a heavy dark caramel taste, additional body, and flavour stability. Subtle notes of burnt sugar and raisin can be detected. No enzymatic potential. Full list of specs under Additional Information.
