Maker’s Light Munich
Maker’s Munich is made from premium 2-row Sask Valley barley.
Our latest light Munich has aromatics reminiscent of southern sweet tea. Toasted bread crust and toffee sweetness balance beautifully with black tea tannins. Despite its robust flavor profile, the high quality barley has maintained an enzyme and extract package suitable for any usage.

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.
Maker’s Light Munich is currently being produced from 2020 Copeland barley grown 5 miles away from the malt house on the home quarter.
Maker’s malt is commercially available in 25 kg bags. It is also now available in smaller 10lb and 2lb bags specifically for our homebrewers!
Maker’s Munich is ideal for darker ales, lagers, and bocks. We push the envelope with our distinctive kilning recipe as the premium barley used by Maker’s holds up to the heat retaining solid enzyme activity for its SRM. The kilning will add robust malty flavor and golden orange tones. Usage rates up to 50% or more may be considered.
Each batch of Maker’s malt conforms with our “Single-Malt” philosophy. It is a pure barley variety with no blending used to achieve specs. It is traceable back to the field where it was grown and the farmer that grew it.
