Voyager Malts - Atlas (La Trobe)
Atlas malt was designed as a lighter style continental type pale malt, suitable for use in specialty lagers and lighter style ales. This versatile, fully modified malt is made exclusively from low protein, Latrobe variety barley, grown by Jamie Kite on his 4th generation family farm ‘Bugong’ Binya, in the Western Riverina of NSW.
An extended, cooler germination is employed to promote even modification. Slightly cooler air on temps during kilning and curing assist in producing a clean, fresh subtle malt complexity without the body or colour of a traditional pale malt. Featuring high extract and fermentability this malt has become quite popular amongst craft distillers.
