Malting Co. of Ireland Ale Malt is a base malt produced from Azalea barley. It's characterized by plump kernels with very low protein and high extract. The elevated kilning temperature (96-98 Â°C) produces a malt that offers an aromatic wort with a rich straw to yellow color. The malt is highly modified and very versatile in the brewhouse. Assortment is very uniform.
