Here's another advert for Plunkett Brothers maltsters. It provides a little more information. Not much, but a little.

It's a couple of years earlier than the last one, from 1888.

This tells us that candied malt was patented in 1885. Useful to know, even if it tells us little about the nature of the malt itself.

But I was surprised at just how many odd malts they were offering for sale. Two types of amber brown malt. Roasted maize - I wonder what on earth that was used for? Golden finish malt - great name, but what the hell was it?

More questions. Many more than the answers so far.https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/5445569787371915337-7656021070514020696?l=barclayperkins.blogspot.com
