Immerse yourself in the distinct character of Admiral Maltings' Yolo Gold, a premium wheat malt derived from the hard white Patwin wheat grown in California's renowned Sacramento Valley. This malt embodies the golden essence of the region, offering a smooth, pillowy mouthfeel with notes of hay, mineral, and freshly rising dough. Its delicate kilning process enhances the raw wheat's natural qualities while introducing subtle malt flavors akin to those found in traditional pilsners.

Yolo Gold is versatile enough for a significant role in wheat beer formulations, suitable for up to 50% of the grain bill in styles like Hefeweizen and Witbier. It can also add body and subtle complexity to lighter beers and hazy IPAs. Beyond its brewing capabilities, Yolo Gold stands as a testament to sustainable agriculture, sourced exclusively from family farms in California that prioritize eco-friendly practices.

This malt not only enriches the flavor profile of your beers but also supports the sustainability of brewing ingredients, reflecting Admiral Maltings' commitment to quality and environmental responsibility. With Yolo Gold, elevate your brewing projects with a malt that captures the essence of California’s agricultural heritage and commitment to craft.
