- Unmalted cooked barley, adds mouthfeel and silky taste.
- Used in stouts and to stabilise beer.
Flaked Barley is unmalted, cooked, and dried barley that has been rolled into flat flakes. It imparts a rich, grainy flavour to beer and is used in many stouts, particularly Irish stouts, enhancing head formation and foam stability. It provides additional body, with a creamy, silky mouthfeel and taste. It does not have the enzymes needed for conversion so should be mashed with malted grains.
