The Maltster's Tale

The Maltster's Tale


entrance via Black Horse Lane,


Today, almost all malt is manufactured using large-batch, high technology equipment under computerised control, but it used to be made in floor maltings, using human skills. Malting is one of the world’s oldest food processing skills, going back beyond 5000 BC, using techniques that took many months to learn. Where once there were thousands of floor maltings across England, now there are only three! Ivor was the last person in Suffolk to make malt for brewing using these empiric skills. A Master Maltster reveals all!

Admission is free with a retiring collection to defray expenses. Donations of at least £2.00 per head are valued to maintain the series. Tea and coffee are served from 12.30pm.
