Peated Malt -Thomas Fawcett & Sons (1 lb)


The distinct phenolic character of many authentic Scotch whiskey brands is derived from using Peated Malt by Thomas Fawcett. It is a light coloured base malt that is dried using peat smoke, which is a traditional method for making malt in Scotland. As a result, the malt imparts a very light colour and imbues the beer with a very pronounced seaweed smoke flavour and aroma, which has become very popular with experimental craft brewers. Though, Thomas Fawcett Peated Malt can be used as a base malt, take note that its smoked character is very potent even compared to traditional smoke malts, so a lower amount may be required to achieve the desired results.
