"Brewing ingredients have increasingly becoming commodities that lack a sense of place. Breweries can use hops from New Zealand, malt from Germany, and yeast shipped overnight from California to create any number of styles. 
We love using local maltsters for their genuine connection to the land as well as their expression of local terroir. In North Carolina very few people realize that we are fortunate enough to have farmers growing local barley and wheat. Grain is not as often talked about as hops, but it constitutes the majority of recipe development and the end product. 
Being able to advertise that we are using grain that was grown and malted in our backyard from a small independent company is something we love telling our guests."

Fall is settling in deep. Now that our harvest work is done we begin turning our attention to reveling in crisp lagers and hand-crafted whiskeys made possible by craft malts. 
What is your post-work beverage of choice?

The increasingly fickle nature of weather and how it affects different geographies is always on our minds. What, for some, is a welcome downpour, is for others a devastating deluge. It is important to remember in these times of literal famine and flood that we have each other. Always be prepared to reach out and to receive. It's what the guild and our incredible community is about.

Happy #clevelandbeerweek all! You know about Corey Miller and @hansabrewery ??? Unbelievable food, location, and most importantly dedication to #ohiocraftbeer - with enough hardware to prove it🥇🥈🥉. Not going to find a heavy IPA selection here (the German style IPA was amazing though). Instead, expect a focus on traditional styles with a couple amazing #sours #pilsner #lager #schwartzbier and a delicious #barrelaged on tap... plus more! Thanks for adding some #ohiomalt to your grain room. We're very proud of our #craftmalt and stoked to see what Corey has planned.

A quick bike ride around the farm, followed by the Dessert & Discussion about the revival of Spartan barley made for an awesome Wednesday! Dr. Russ Freed spoke about his role as a plant breeder in bringing Spartan back to Michigan and Dr. Dean Baas spoke about the state of barley in Michigan.

From start to finish, every detail is examined. From the time the farmer plants his crop, to the moment finished grain is placed in the bag, quality is considered, measured, and finally delivered.

In this industry we are equal parts poets and nerds. We love learning every technical detail from brewers, distillers, farmers, and other maltsters. Whether it be yeast viability, conversion rates of various grains, or protein percentages we are keen to share and receive all the science possible. So we're curious; what has made you geek out the most this year?

While hops are great and aren’t going anywhere, we believe craft malt will be one of the next big things in craft beer. So instead of heading east to get fresh hops, we went north to check out the barley harvest at @skagitvalleymalting.

Community is the cornerstone of Maltsters. Connectivity to our brothers and sisters in craft is how we learn about new developments, share old wisdoms, fix broken equipment, borrow needed tools, and bond over stories of our shared experience. 
Gather every chance you get.

Freshly sprouted and floor malted barley means that the summer harvest has come and gone and now begins the hard work. 
Whether it is old world, floor-malting or a state-of-the-art steeping, germination-kilning processes, all of our eyes are firmly fixed on creating the highest quality craft malt that speaks to our geography, our varietals, and our ethos. Cheers to the hard work of harvest.

As craft Maltsters we have the incredible privilege and responsibility of improving the supply chain through conservation efforts. 
A perfect example of that responsibility lived out is watching our friends from @hauserandhauser, @sinaguamalt, and @azwilderness work together to create and put to use the first ever Arizona grown and malted barley. 
Their water conscious and groundbreaking work has saved 47 million gallons of water in the month of June alone for the Verde River. 
47 million gallons. 
Saving the landscape has meant changing the landscape of craft malt and beer in Arizona and that is something worth celebrating.

With an abundance of land and access to prime barley growing country Dennis and Jeanette Nesel felt an obligation to do more, to use the sweat of their brow and the work their hands to contribute to the farming, craft brewing, and distilling community. With their passion, hard-work, and artistry they have done exactly that. •

Packaging malts is a last, but critical step in sending our hard work out to local brewers and distillers. Every bag must be bone dry and every seam sewn thoroughly to ensure freshness and preserve the intention of the malt. No detail is too small for the craftsperson.

It is a humbling thing: how acres and acres of seed-grown wheat, rye, and barley yield treasures small enough to hold in our hands. This gigantic effort of nature, farmers, and maltsters alike is one that we endeavor to remember with every season and yield.

Testing av spireevne oppdatert. Av de kornene som lå i vann med Hydrogenperosid fikk 96% en hvit tupp og forsøket ble avsluttet før tiden da det er bra nok. Flere tallerkener ble satt med og uten plast og papir for å få litt følelse med kompleksiteten. I to av dem var det bare noen få prosent som spiret og i en hadde vi en del korn som klarte å både skaffe seg rot og spire på tre dager. Der var spireprosenten også lav, 56%. Nå gjelder det å replikkere 96% i storformat. #norskmalt #craftmalt #craftmaltsters #malt #norgetrengerbonden #norskkorn #norskøl #kortreist #håndtverk #håndverksøl

Consistency is the name of the game. We do everything we can to ensure a consistent product including many different sensory tests like the one @craftmalting described below. 
Reposting @craftmalting:
...
"Consistency is in the eye of the Maltster. This keen view is never more evident than the roasting process during which, a “triangle” test, is employed to ensure consistency in roast batch after batch. A small amount of each specific batch is always held back to compare to the newly roasted malt. They are scrutinized by the discerning eye of the maltster until the new batch matches the old in color. It is a practice made possible by repetition, experience, and expertise.

The cyclical nature of the harvest means an ever-present connection to the natural elements around us. 
The insects, creatures, and the weather are always at the forefront of our minds. Every facet contributes to the final product in your glass. 
Never take a single one for granted.

#TheWayMaltShouldBe Talk about a #ThrowbackThursday! Joel distributing barley on the germination floor late one night. It takes hard work to produce high quality Malt. But trust me, it's worth it. .

Cheers to long summer sunsets, breezes that softly shake the fields, and the promise of bountiful harvests.

There's no shortcut to learning a craft-blood, sweat, tears, time and shovelling, lots of shovelling.

Our craft is not new. Centuries of farmers, bakers, and maltsters have preceded us, shedding light on the path behind us and informing a collective past. But even these well-worn tracks beg for deviation toward new creativity, breakthroughs in process, and evolution of mindsets. Our craft is not new, but every day we forge a new way.

Within the first few hours of its very first batch of distiller’s malt, one of our Automalters (AM-100) quickly showed its true colors and earned the name “Hal.”
More than four months later, I decided it was time to make it official. .

Consistency is in the eye of the Maltster. This keen view is never more evident than the roasting process during which, a “triangle” test, is employed to ensure consistency in roast batch after batch. A small amount of each specific batch is always held back to compare to the newly roasted malt. They are scrutinized by the discerning eye of the maltster until the new batch matches the old in color. It is a practice made possible by repetition, experience, and expertise.

2-row, 6-row, wheat, rye: every grain that is farmed requires a steadfast approach to quality. The evidence of this meticulous care can be seen, felt, and ultimately tasted from field to pint.

One of the first crops to be domesticated by humans, barley remains one of the most challenging to produce with the level of quality and consistency suitable for world class #craftbeer and #craftspirits. 
Wrapped up with the potential for heartache, however, is the possibility of success in producing superior malts. And that possibility keeps us malting.

What do I do on 90 degree days? Cycle 37 miles and cool down by making granola, of course!

50% rolled oats, 20% malted soft red wheat, 15% malted barley, 10% hulled hemp seeds, and 5% cacao nibs make up the dry mix. Coconut oil, wildflower honey, and an egg white are bringing the granola magic!

And of course, I coarse ground the wheat and barley malt on the Mockmill 100!!

The sight and scent of freshly roasted barley never gets old.

I often get the question if it is possible to use rootlets somehow or are they just a waste to throw away.
Lets have a look at the composition of rootlets:

moisture  8,8%,
protein 30%,
fat 2%,
raw gluten 8,6%,
extractive substances not containing nitrogen 44,6%
.

So if you keep animals (pigs, cows) or if there is somebody around keeping animals – rootlets can be successfully used (and sold) as animal food. Check if your pigs are not participating in ”gluten free” company.
