Barley malt is an ingredient used in brewing, a division of the Cooking skill. Barley malt can be made by cooking barley on a range. Barley can be grown from exceedingly common seeds at Farming level 3, and can be protected by farmers for the price of three buckets of compost.
Barley malt is a critical ingredient in brewing. All types of ale require barley malt as an ingredient (note that cider is not an ale). To start brewing, a player must first go to one of the brewing vats located in either Keldagrim or Port Phasmatys. After adding two buckets of water to the brewing vat, a player must add two barley malt items to the vat, followed by the deciding ingredient and ale yeast.
6 barley malt are also used as farming protection payment of jute.
