Haus Malts Chit Malt is a very short germination time leading to a low level of modification. In the past, chit malt is used in place of raw barley for head formation and retention. More recently, chit malt is being used in hazy beers due to the malt's ability to withstand oxidation (protein breakdown) during the boil.

STORING YOUR MALT
Keeping your malt fresh is an important factor in making great beer. The three big enemies of malt are heat, light and oxygen. If you manage these three factors, you will be fine.
Here are guidelines for storing your malt if you aren’t going to use it right away. Malt should be kept in sealable, moisture-proof bags or any air-tight bug/rodent proof container. Any unused grain should be resealed. It does best when stored in a low-humidity environment with temperatures below 90° F. Due to environmental fluctuations, we do not recommend storing malt outside or in your garage, even if stored properly.
Although perishable, your malted grain should store well for at least a year under these conditions. There may be some mild flavor loss after 18 months. Cheers!
