@rosestaproom Field Trip to @admiralmaltings! @hillaryrosestaproom raking out floor malted barley on the germination floor. What an accomplishment...and what an incredible resource. Thanks @admiralmaltings and @stgeorgespirits for an awesome day! 😍
Earlier today we visited our friends and California craft malt pioneers, @admiralmaltings, at their malthouse in Alameda! We toured the facility and learned about their unique process that integrates traditional floor malting techniques with modern kilning practices. What an awesome field trip! A big thank you to the entire Admiral team (including our own Founder, Dave McLean 😎) for a great time and for being wonderful hosts. We love what these guys are doing and are excited to continue using their malt! Be on the lookout for our second batch of Admiral Ashbury at @magnoliapub and @sfsmokestack soon 👍🍻 #MagnoliaBrewing#AdmiralMaltings#craftmalt#craftbeer#fieldtrip#malthouse#alameda#sanfrancisco#californiamade#californiagrown#locallysourced#community
Every drop of beer starts with a single kernel of malted barley. But even though our state grows plenty of barley, there was no one working to malt it into brew-worthy form—until now! We were fortunate enough to take a tour of the brand-new @admiralmaltings in Alameda, which will make it possible for California craft beer drinkers to drink truly local, from start to finish. Look out for a Temescal beer brewed with Admiral malt very soon.
So excited to tour @admiralmaltings today. They blend smart technology like glycol floors with traditional methods like floor malting, and they work directly with local farmers to get unique and even experimental varieties of barley. Truly handmade (each bag personally signed by Ron! :D) And I can tell you it’s delicious. I can’t wait to brew with their malts and share them with you in a new line of kits in my shop! #brewing#local#california#organic#alameda#oakland#homebrewing
