Naked Oats® is actually a husk-less crystal malt. With a unique and subtle, nutty flavor, Golden Naked Oats contributes a subdued, grainy sweetness to the finished beer. Imparting light golden hues to the wort, the crystalized Oat Malt adds body, smooth mouthfeel and assists in the production of a creamy, robust head. Although an exotic ingredient and not a traditional component of any existing beer style, Simpsons Golden Naked Oats® is perfect for malty or full-bodied beers - especially Nut Brown Ales and Stouts.
Crystal malts are gently cooked during the malting process. Cooking initiates the enzymatic conversion of starches into fermentable sugars, and caramelizes some of the sugars as the malt reaches its final color, thus eliminating the need to mash crystal malt while ensuring a portion of the sugars surviving fermentation to sweeten the finished beer.
