Profile

Extra Pale Ale Malt is a type of base malt used in beer brewing that adds unique characteristics to the final product. It has a light color and imparts a delicate, slightly sweet flavor profile with hints of breadiness and biscuit-like notes. When used in brewing, Extra Pale Ale Malt influences the taste of beer by providing a clean malt backbone and contributing to its overall balance.

This particular grain is commonly utilized as the primary ingredient for pale ales, IPAs (India Pale Ales), and other hop-forward beer styles. Its properties include excellent enzymatic activity, which aids in converting starches into fermentable sugars during the mashing process. The resulting beers brewed with Extra Pale Ale Malt are often crisp, refreshing, and have moderate alcohol content due to its ability to yield high levels of fermentable sugars without adding excessive sweetness or body to the finished product.
