Our Malts

Maker’s Munich 10

The Munich is beautifully balanced between malty caramel sweetness and roasted burnt bitterness.  The aromatics are reminiscent of a dark Earl Gray tea.  Despite its robust flavor profile, the high quality barley has maintained an enzyme and extract package more reminiscent of a base malt.

Production

Maker’s Vienna is made from premium 2-row Copeland barley. The 2018 Vintage was grown on “Horseshoe Bend” one mile from the Malt House in Rosthern, Saskatchewan.

Packaging

Maker’s Pale is commercially available in 25 kg bags.  It is also now available in smaller 10lb and 2lb bags specifically for our homebrewers!

Usage

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.

Unique Batches

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.  Each batch is then 3rd party tested by Hartwick College in NY to ensure quality and consistency before its release.  We provide a unique batch analysis sheet for every single batch ensuring you know exactly what is in your malt.
