You may ask yourself...
How will I know what specialty malts will be offered?
You can safely bet that you will get: wheat, rye, smoked malt and heirloom grains. We are always doing research and development to perfect our specialty malts and push the boundaries of what malts can be. You may find that the wheat malt share is from an heirloom wheat variety, the crystal malt share is crystal wheat or that the smoked malt is smoked with local walnut or cherry wood. You may also find a small bag of bonus malt in some of your share. These would be some of our more off the wall malts that are in R & D such as: chamomile crystal or apple wood smoked crystal spelt.
When do I pick up my grains?
June, September, January and March. You will get an email at least a week beforehand letting you know what the specialty malt will be and when it will be delivered. It is important that you pick-up your malt within 1 week at participating homebrew shops. Malthouse pick-up is much more laid back. There is a bin at the malthouse where the malts are stored until you come and get them.
Who are the farmers?
We have about 10 farmers including us that are growing organic certified malting barley this year. Many of us are also growing other cereal grains such as wheat, rye, spelt, emmer, and triticale. We will highlight the farms that your malt came from and provide information about the varieties with each share.
