OSU barley in the news
The OSU Malt House and Malt Lab
The OSU malt house has had a successful maiden flight. It is a a resource for making ~ 100 - 300 lbs of malt per run using the OSU mini-malter. We are also developing protocols for small-scale countertop malting and intermediate-scale "floor" malting. The OSU Malt Lab is getting equipped and training sessions are scheduled for September/October. Many thanks to Rahr Malting for the generous donation of lab equipment.
The OSU mini-malter is a device designed and built by OSU Engineering students in collaboration with the Fermentation Science and Barley Breeding Programs. It is an open source system - we share the plans and operating manual in return for support of the OSU malt lab. For more information please contact Patrick Hayes
