Our Malts

Maker's Dark Munich

Maker’s Dark 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.

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.


Maker’s Dark Munich is currently created from 2020 Sask Valley Copeland barley.


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.

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.
