“Wind-malt” is a long-forgotten style of Belgian malt that was allowed to air-dry in the lofts of barns. To our knowledge, it has never been produced commercially in North America. We’ve revived it with “Gateway,” a malt that is bursting with the aroma of fresh-cut hay while being nearly translucent in color. Gateway is perfectly-suited for decoctions, step mashing, and is the missing ingredient when brewing historic styles of beer.

Opal 22 packs in heaps of lightly-toasted, graham and chocolate flavor - just think: S’mores around the campfire minus the marshmallow. Use anywhere from 0-100% to add even more depth to your grain bill.

Opal 44 is your next, secret ingredient. Sweet, moderately-toasted, with hints of chocolate and raisin; it’s wort is reminiscent of homemade almond roca. The typical usage rate is 2.5 - 5%, but at 44 DP, it can be used up to 100%.

Grassy? Spicy? It’s time to toss those over-used flavor descriptors to the wayside and experience malted rye that is in a class of its own. Rimrock is gently-kilned to a rich orange hue and has a warm bread flavor with notes of graham and honey. This rustic malt has a slight aromatic and herbal character that will remind you of the High Desert frontier.
