MALTESTER MAN

Postby watters2831 » Wed Jun 13, 2012 6:45 pm

I have come across somebody and his occupation seem to be a Maltester Man ?? and i have absolutely no idea what it is , i've tried googling it and i just get back chocolate snacks ha ha the only thing i can think of is maybe a Malt Tester ? something to do with brewing or a brewery.... any ideas?


i have checked the 1851/61/71 census and he appears to have the same occupation

check the link section under occupation should be a site with the explination
A person should have an opinion on everything, It becomes tact whether you reveal that opinion or not.
