Planet is Munton's new flagship spring barley variety, now replacing Propino as the most popular spring brewing variety of malting barley grown in the UK. Planet has proved to so versatile, it has become the most widely grown cereal variety in the world. Planet has a cereal-forward taste complemented with a mild nuttiness, imparted because of its slightly higher attenuation level. Planet has a high yield and performs very well in the brewhouse.
This traditional pale malt is ideal for classic top-fermented beers. Suitable for IPA’s, bitters, golden ales, and light beers. Pale is slightly darker and “maltier” than lager malt
It has a lower ‘masking’ effect than either Venture or Maris Otter leading to an increase in the impact of aroma hops and yeast aromas. Care must be taken as this also means that any brewing errors are less easily covered. In our tests, Planet has performed very well and feedback from brewers using this variety has been very positive, particularly with extract levels and flavor profiles. Muntons recommends a mash temperature of at least 149F, as this is the average gelatinization temperature for this variety. Mashing at a lower temperature could cause a slow conversion.
