A floor-malted barley malt from a single barley variety (Halcyon: barley variety that was bred from the Maris Otter and Sargent barley varieties. It’s a high-yielding, two-row winter barley variety.), and produced by a centuries-old, family-owned maltster. Halcyon Pale Ale Malt is considered to be one of the last remaining traditional English Pale Malts. Adds a degree of biscuit flavor to the beer. Brighter and lighter in flavor than Pearl, Halcyon is a great malt for the production of Real Ales. It tends to produce a less sweet wort than Maris Otter. Tends to produce a harperwort than Maris Otter. All the base malts from Thomas Fawcett & Sons are grown by local, family farmers near the maltings area. It was rather low in protein (usually around 9.5%), which made it perfectly suitable for traditional English ale type, single-step infusion mashing. The low protein values also ensured good extract values during lautering. Halcyon imbued the beers made from it with a pleasant biscuit component that gave the finished beer a hearty mouthfeel, as well as some depth and complexity of flavor, although not as round and sweet as attributes given by Maris Otter. Many American craft brewers first became familiar with British malts in the late 1980s, and Halcyon was one of the main barley varieties in the imported pale ale malts of the day.
