It is a unique reservoir of genetic variability accumulated throughout its ancestry.”
Malted in a Melanoidin style at our sister pilot plant in Antwerp. Stewed during germination to build heat, thus allowing the maillard reaction to produce high colour followed by aggressive kilning for maximum aroma and flavour.
