Tell us about Crisp Malt?
The history of Crisp Malt dates back to 1870 when two brothers acknowledged the quality of malting barley being grown in Norfolk and they invested in a maltings which became the home of the Great Ryburgh Maltings that is still the heart of the company today. The maltings has survived bombings during the war and whilst it closed for 2 years to repair and rebuild it used this time to start modernising and improving like a phoenix out of the ashes and this has seen constant investment throughout the decades that followed this. Key investments and acquisition of other maltings has placed Crisp at the top of their game in terms of malting, key acquisitions would be that of Micronised Food Products which brings a very interesting catalogue of products to the modern brewer and Tivoli matings in Hamberg and Bydgoszcz in Poland.
The new speciality malting plant is not only making a more evenly and consistently made speciality malt it is innovating a small batch series to inspire creativity and diverse new beer styles.
In the very recent past they have invested in a new specialised malting plant which is the only one of its kind in the UK, this also triggered investment in a new packaging plant and even a new peated kiln for production of peated distilling malt.
