“There is no doubt, Warminster Maltings is not just a very special place, it is also the spiritual home of two of the most outstanding malting barleys in the world.”- Robin Appel
Like all food processing, slower is better. Warminster’s malting process was designed to follow gentle procedures, allowing for the optimum expression of the barley’s properties. Germination floors are the perfect environment to optimize the ‘modification’ of the barley’s starch into the sugary substance called maltose.
“We are passionately committed to respecting the time-honored method for making malt, the sort of malt which becomes the body of beer!”-Robin Appel
