OSU Barley in the news and in the malt

OSU barley in the news

The OSU Malt Lab and the mini-malter

The OSU malt lab is up and running. It is a a resource for (1) making ~ 100 - 300 lbs of malt per run using the OSU mini-malter and (2) analyzing malting quality parameters. 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
