The OSU malt house is an integral tool for barley research. Please click here to see our CMC-21 presentation on how a research malt house can inform barley breeding and expand research horizons.
There are two instruments in our "Estate malt house" - a CLP and a mini-malter. The former malts multiple small samples and is used, primarily, for dialing in malting protocols for the latter. The mini-malter can produces ~ 100 - 300 lbs of malt per run.
Malt analysis - we use and recommend Hartwick College for micromalting and malt analysis.
