Terms & Lingo


The process of heat-drying malted barley in a kiln to stop germination and to produce a dry, easily milled malt from which the brittle rootlets are easily removed. Kilning also removes the raw flavour (or green-malt flavour) associated with germinating barley, and new aromas, flavours, and colours develop according to the intensity and duration of the kilning process.
