Diastatic Malt United Kingdom


Just bought the "Bible" but have come across a snag.

I'm struggling to find diastatic malt in the UK. Centralmilling.com don't ship to UK and the likes of Amazon.co.uk and brewing suppliers don't seem to do it either.

Anyone in the UK (or Tony) able to give any pointers? Otherwise, my book may never yield a single recipe. :-(

Thanks all
Steve

Steve,

This is what you want:

http://bakerybits.co.uk/bakery-ingredients/flour/malted-flour-ingredients/diax-diastatic-malt-flour.html

Although it is not a low-diastatic malt as Tony suggests in his Bible, you can still use it albeit at a lower percentage since it has a Lintner value of 120-180 whereas TG's malt is around Lintner 20.

In other words, the above-mentioned malt is somewhat more powerful so you'd need to experiment with it in your doughs.

Hope that helps.

Here's another one from a German Bakery. They ship within Europe.
