Maker’s Midnight is made from premium 2-row barley.
Midnight is what happens when you max out your kiln and walk away for a few hours. There is a beautiful note of dark fruit reminiscent of a dark red Bordeaux that we believe is accentuated by our extremely unique process. The malt will also contribute chocolate and move into the roasted spectrum. At first glance this malt looks mild, but come to the dark side with caution…

Grown in Maker's Malt
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.
The most interesting thing about this malt is the unique process we impart during kilning. Part luck, part user-error and a lot of ingenuity lead to a serendipitous malt. We are quite certain that our proprietary recipe is the only one using this technique!
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 Midnight is a high-kilned malt and should be used as a specialty product to add color and unique dark flavors.
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.
