Our Malts

Maker's Midnight

This is what happens when you max out your kiln and walk away.  The malt will contribute roasted notes, moving from the chocolate into the bitter/burnt spectrum. There is a beautiful note of dark fruit reminiscent of a dark red Bordeaux.  Use at your own risk! 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.

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 Midnight is a high-kilned malt and should be used as a specialty product to add color and unique dark flavors.

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.
