Familiar names top recommended malt barley list

Based on market demand and feedback from the malting industry, the Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre (CMBTC) publishes a list every fall of recommended varieties for producers to grow the following year.

And every year, for the last 11, the list has been topped by AC Metcalfe and CDC Copeland. (CDC Copeland joined AC Metcalfe in 2008-09. AC Metcalfe has been in the top category on the list even longer.)

Both two-row varieties are recognized as still having “established demand” in the recently published 2018-19 list.

AAC Synergy is described as having “growing demand,” while AAC Connect and CDC Bow are categorized as “under commercial market development.”

CDC PlatinumStar and CDC PolarStar are currently closed loop varieties with a specific buyer. The CMBTC says marketing opportunities also remain for Bentley, Newdale and CDC Kindersley in some areas.

The centre also highlights newer two-row varieties — CDC Fraser and Lowe — as having shown good quality characteristics for all malt and adjunct brewing styles in pilot testing. Both varieties are undergoing seed propagation.

As for six-row varieties, Legacy, Tradition and Celebration are all categorized as having “limited demand.”
