Ivor Murrell
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!
