MALT SHOVEL BREWERY
Lager is a crisp refreshing beer, with a golden colour and smooth sweet
malt character from the lager malt. These flavours are enhanced by
our European lager yeast strain, provided for your primary fermentation.
In most lagers produced from brewing kits, the hop aroma is lost in the
process of creating a malt extract. Two-Row Lager is late hopped,
infused with New Zealand Hallertau hops, to create a delicious aroma of
passionfruit and citrus.
This highly drinkable lager is best enjoyed at 3-5°C, as an accompaniment
to seafood or grilled chicken salad. This Malt Shovel Craft Brewing
Kit is all malt, with no sugar or other adjuncts - so your brew will have
a richer character and texture, luscious flavours and a fuller mouth feel.
And since few commercial beers use an all malt brew, this handcrafted beer
could compare favourably indeed. The challenge is now yours.
Wheat Beer is a highly drinkable brew, with its distinctive flavour
and spicy clove aroma. Summer Wheat Beer is brewed using sixty
percent wheat malt and forty percent pale malt. The grains are
fermented with a German yeast strain to produce a complex flavour with
tangy notes of citrus, finely balanced by the bittering hops. This
refreshing wheat beer is best enjoyed chilled, as an accompaniment to
seafood or a fruit platter.
Pale Ale is based on a traditional brewing recipe from England, the
birthplace of this full-bodied bitter style. Its distinctive spicy
aroma is provided by a Saaz aromatic hop extract, which has been infused
into the malt extract. A subtle combination of ale malt and caramalt
creates the strong malty characteristics. Pale Ale is best enjoyed
at 5-7°C, as an accompaniment to spicy curries or smoked barramundi.

aromatics, produced by prolonged roasting of the malt during kilning.

caramalt. Chocolate malt also creates the rich copper colour and a
delicious nutty aroma. The result is a full-bodied brown ale with a
smooth malt sweet finish. Nut Brown Ale is best enjoyed at 10°C, as
an accompaniment to roasted pork or leg of lamb.
