Our first ever trial-batch of HoneyB was done in the middle of June with the doors to the malt house wide open. Less than an hour into our lengthy process we had a literal swarm of bees in the plant attracted by the exceptionally sweet aromatics. This malt brings forth honey and light caramel with mild acidity and without the roasted flavour profile of our Caramel series making it a unique and versatile option!

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.
HoneyB was done with 2019 Bow Barley grown on the Riekman land 5 miles west of the malt house. Bow barley continues to impress for its plump kernels and is one of the new group of varietals with a chance to increase it market share
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!
Who’s the brewer in this relationship?!
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.
