Barn Owl Malt produces premium quality malts that express the distinct character of grains grown in Ontario. Produced in small batches using a traditional floor malting technique, our malts are consistent, highly aromatic, and will offer distinct character and flavour to your next brew. These malts perform well in the brewhouse, with exceptional extract potential, yeast nutrition and diastatic power, providing enough flavour and performance to stand alone in a brew made with 100% Ontario craft malts. Currently all our barley malts are made with 2-row varieties grown right here in Ontario. We do not mix our grain streams; each batch is from a single source, ensuring complete traceability to the farm and grain variety. We are proud to showcase the true potential of Ontario craft malts as high quality, world class, specialty malts.
Pilsner Malt - This is our newest and lightest malt. Perfect for summery, easy drinking beers. 2-row AC Newdale barley grown in Prince Edward County, Ontario.
Lager Malt - This malt is a lightly kilned, pale malt with a nice biscuit aroma that finishes dry. An excellent choice to highlight the flavours of Ontario grown hops. 2-row AC Newdale barley grown in Almonte, Ontario.
Pale Ale Malt (AC Newdale) - A versatile pale malt that is moderately kilned, providing lightly toasted notes with a mild malty finish. Great for a wide range of North American and British style ales. 2-row AC Newdale barley grown in Almonte, Ontario.
Pale Ale Malt (AC Metcalfe) - A distinctly creamy pale malt offering a smooth mouth feel and exceptional head retention. Particularly well suited to cream ales. 2-row AC Metcalfe barley grown in Bath, Ontario.
Munich Malt - Our germination and kilning processes for this malt are designed to promote melonoidin development. Our Munich provides medium/deep amber colour with a pronounced toasted and robust malty flavour. Use this malt to add character and a little sweetness to any recipe (comparable to a munich II). 2-row AC Newdale barley grown in Almonte, Ontario.
