Our Malts

Maker's Pilsner

The 2018 Vintage was grown on “Horseshoe Bend” one mile from the  malt house in Rosthern, Saskatchewan. Our premium barley allows us to produce pilsner malt with a fantastic quality specs including high Diastatic Power, high FAN and low Beta-Glucans.  Our pilsner malt has subdued notes in comparison to our other base malts to provide a blank canvas for other aspects of the recipe (such as hops) to shine through!

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

Usage

Use as the backbone for a traditional pilsner or any beer and whiskey that requires a very light finishing SRM.  Usage rate of 100%. A strong enzyme package allows this malt to easily partner with non-malted or specialty  grains. A fast fermentation is typical.

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.
