We know that the proof is in the taste of the finished product. That’s why we installed a pilot brewery in our Malt Innovation Center and staffed it with experienced Brew Masters.  Producing beer under the controlled conditions of our brewery allows us to discover what flavors and other quality parameters our customers may encounter when using our innovative malts. 

“Our pilot brewery takes us to the next level in Malt Innovation by making sure the malts are able to be brewed in a commercial environment. We take what we learn in our pilot system and partner with Craft Brewers to learn more about how they would use the malts.” – Teri Fahrendorf, Manager Malt Innovation Center

We work side by side with brewers, distillers, and other food industry professionals /culinarians, collaborating on projects that utilize our own and partner facilities.  We share and learn the latest industry trends, and hunt for new ideas that will lead to malt products that will meet future industry needs.  Having the flexibility of both an on-site malting and brewing system allows for a greater understanding and a closer relationship with our customers.
