Our Malts

Hestia Rye

This Organic Rye is grown by the Regier family of Hestia Farms in Tiefengrund (between Laird and the historical Fort Carlton).  Their home quarter is only 2 miles from our most northwest fields.  When the Mennonites emigrated from Russia under threat of the Bolsehviks, they were looking for soil that could live up to the vast Steppes of the Ukraine and western Russia and found it here.  This is Rye straight from God’s country!

Packaging

Usage

This Rye has been specially kilned to enhance its toastiness and spice.  It’s light amber tone will remind you of a darker Vienna malt.  The statistics on this malt are fantastic…92% extract combined with extremely low Beta-Glucans at 51 mg/L could allow you to theoretically use this malt at any percentage.  Typically beer usage might sit between 5-20%

Unique Batches

Each batch of Maker’s malt conforms with our “Single-Malt” philosophy.  It is a pure 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.
