Why should you consider malting yourself?

Reduce cost

Gain a competitive cost advantage by avoiding the cost of distribution and margins paid to maltsters. Local breweries can link up with barley farmers through long-term contracts, that set prices and help finance a small but scalable malting plant. By controlling the entire production process, you can ensure that the malt you produce meets the exact specifications you require. By producing your own malt, you can save money on the cost of ingredients and eliminate shipping and handling costs.

Respond immediately to flavour changes

With direct control over the malting process, you can quickly adjust the flavour profile of your malt to meet the needs of your customers. This level of flexibility is invaluable in the rapidly evolving craft beer and distilling markets, where trends can change overnight. Flexible malting plants allow you to change the way you produce your own malt within a week.


We help you to start your malting business

Whether you're a brewer, distiller, food processor or farmer, producing your own malt can open up more efficient, highly individual and cost-effective processes. With the right guidance and support, you can take control of your malt production and take your business to the next level.

Create highly individual malts, tailored to your own preferences

You can use different grains, temperatures and roasting times to create unique flavours and aromas that can be difficult to achieve with ready-made malt. This level of customisation can result in a more personal and satisfying beer or whisky. It can also help you stay ahead of new urban trends. With the ability to claim unique positioning and create new tastes in scarce urban areas, you can differentiate your product and attract a loyal customer base.


Produce and consume local and help meet sustainability goals

Malting your own grain gives you greater control over the sourcing and quality of your ingredients, ensuring that they are sustainably produced and harvested. This means you can make informed choices that align with your personal values and help achieve sustainability goals.

Locality is also an important factor in sustainability. By supporting local farmers and businesses, you reduce the carbon footprint associated with transport and distribution. This is because local products require less transport and packaging, resulting in a lower overall environmental impact..

As a brewer, I want to be able to adjust the size of my batches of steeped barley so that I can produce different quantities of beer. With the combined germination and kilning units, that come in a range of sizes, I can easily adjust the batch size - that allows me to produce differing quantities of high-quality beer, while maintaining consistency in my brews.
