Specialty Malt from the View of the Craft Brewer

Fred Scheer. Poster presented at the MBAA 111th Anniversary Convention, Minneapolis, Minnesota, September, 1998.

Abstract
The primary objective in selection of malting barley for brewing is to get a high quality finished malt, which produces in turn a high quality wort and finished beer. Barley breeding projects for the past years have had the objective of developing premium quality, high yielding, dryland-adapted, 2-rowed malting barley varieties. The malting industry in the past years also has globalized and consolidated, which makes marketing more challenging. The terms for 2-rowed malting barley, and also the criteria which the maltster uses to select high quality 2-rowed malting barley are described.
Keywords: malt, barley, fusarium, barley selection
