Blinded by Science: Malted Barley Production!

Leave a comment

February 6, 2015 by fhsteinbart


In a very interesting article, the Canadian National Grain Commission have shown that Barley Malt production have increased, despite futures economists more pessimistic views. This looks like more reapportionment to me, as yields are currently increasing at a faster pace than sowing new acreage. Why should we even care about Canadian grain you may ask? Primarily because ¾’s of all Barley Malt production in the Northern Hemisphere takes place in Canada, and most of that comes from Alberta. Therefore when the area seeded is lower than the production yields procured, it becomes immediately apparent that their is reapportionment going on between brewing, feed stocks, forage, and furthermore the resulting lower protein levels and larger, heavier kernels, as used in brewing.
