Jay’s Brewing Malt Spotlight – Golden Promise

Jay’s Brewing spotlight is back after a long hiatus, and this week we are looking at Simpsons Golden Promise™. Simpsons Golden Promise™ malt is made from spring barley and is considered a UK classic. It is considered the Scottish equivalent to Maris Otter and has similar applications. This malt is excellent for both brewing and distilling. Interestingly, it is the true original barley for distilling, having been chosen for its flavor attributes to producing top quality scotch and whisky. Golden Promise™ produces a mellow wort, with a sweet, clean flavor which can be described as almost honey like. Maris otter features a “biscuity” and “semi-sweet” flavor where Golden Promise™ features a more sweet, robust flavor. This malt is great for when you need a high performing, well balanced malt to complement your hops. Golden Promise™ is well used in any English or Scottish style ale. The sweet, robust malt flavor of Golden Promise™ has also made it a choice base malt for American IPAs, lagers, and several famous whiskeys.
