Planet Pale Malt- Muntons 55lb Sack




SKU: N/A Categories: ,


Planet is Muntons new flagship spring barley variety, now replacing Propino as the most popular variety of spring malting barley grown in the
UK. Planet has proved so versatile it has become a very widely grown cereal variety. The UK is blessed with arguably the prime climate for barley
growing. Couple this with the extreme care taken during the malting process by our malting team, and the result is outstanding. Muntons Pale and
Extra Pale malts made from Planet malting barley are considered by many to be some of the finest Spring barley malts available.


Planet has a high yield and performs very well in the brewhouse. We recommend a mashing temperature of at least 149⁰ F, as this is the average
gelatinization temperature for this variety. Mashing at a lower temperature could cause a slow conversion or even stall as the starch might not fully

Planet has a cereal-forward taste complemented with a mild nuttiness, imparted because of its slightly higher attenuation level. It has a lower
‘masking’ effect than either Venture or Maris Otter leading to an increase in the impact of aroma hops and yeast aromas. Care must be taken as this
also means that any brewing errors are less easily covered. In our tests, Planet has performed well and feedback from brewers using this variety has
been very positive, particularly with extract levels and flavor profiles.

This traditional pale malt is ideal for classic top fermented beers. Suitable for IPA’s, pale ales, porters and stouts. Planet Pale is slightly darker and “maltier” than most North American malts, whereas Planet Extra Pale is similar in color to North American 2-row with a similar depth of flavor as Planet Pale.
