Maker’s Vienna is uniquely kilned to maximize flavor profile and aromatic punch. It is reminiscent of a heritage English floor malt with hints of bread crust and toffee bringing a slightly darker vibe. Rich malty flavor and a full-on crackery sweetness dominate. I’ve often thought that Vienna is what our traditional Sask Valley barley is meant to become and that we have to tether it back when making anything lighter. Maker’s Vienna is considered our malt house signature.

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 2020 vintage was grown on the home quarter, 5 miles from the Malt House in Rosthern, Saskatchewan.
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!
Can be used in all types of beer and whiskey at a usage rate of up to 100%. A strong enzyme package allows this malt to be paired with non-malted and specialty grains. Also use to add malty backbone, aromatics and golden color to Pale Malts. Great for traditional English-style beers.
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.
