Our Malts

Caramel 60

The 2019 Vintage was grown on the “Reikman Land” 5 miles from the  malt house in Rosthern, Saskatchewan.  After a long cool germination, we sealed up the vessel and recirculated hot/humid air, stewing this malt in its own juices at mash temps.  This process starts the conversion of starches into sugars and man was it sweet!  We literally had bees swarming the plant in the last couple of hours stewing.  We then ramp up the kiln to darken the malt and promote Maillard reactions.  The end result is a malt with sweetness in the honey and caramel ranges.

Grown in Double E Grain

By Elmer Enns

Elmer Enns is our original farmer having grown up on a mixed grain and livestock/dairy farm where we are still located today.  Elmer graduated from the College of Agriculture at the University of Saskatchewan in 1977 and soon after started DoubleEGrain.  Elmer is a strong steward of the land and believes in sustainability.  He was among the first farmers to incorporate “No-Till” farming which preserves organic matter and prevents soil erosion.  Elmer is the senior operator in our group and has participated in over 50 harvests.  Despite spending more time with his 8 grandchildren, Elmer is still full-time farming and enjoys the challenge each new season brings to the table.
