This batch uses the 2017 vintage which was a fantastic year and the extract and FAN numbers are amongst the highest we’ve produced.  We’ve named it Bow Bayern after the Bavarian region of Germany.  The taste profile is robust and malty, reminiscent of a Maris Otter English-styled malt.  We hope you enjoy working with this malt as much as we have!

The 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.

Maker's Munich 20

Maker’s Malt’s small farm collective grows barley in the heart of the Sask Valley. Located between the North and South Saskatchewan Rivers, the Sask Valley boasts some of the best barley growing dirt in the world. The barley is uniquely grown in reserve plots for Maker’s Malt and only the top 5-10% of our barley makes it to the malt house, with the rest going to large commercial maltsters. This unique vertical integration of grower and maltster allows us to align our agronomic practices purely with quality in mind.

Caramel 40

The 2018 Vintage was grown on “Horseshoe Bend” one mile from the  malt house in Rosthern, Saskatchewan.  After a long cool germination we stew this malt in its own juices at mashing temperature.  This process starts the conversion of starches into sugars.  We then ramp up the kiln to darken the malt and promote Maillard reactions.  The end result is a malt with sweetness in the honey and caramel ranges.

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…
