I am weirdly excited to have a local producer and I'm curious to see how their 6-row performs. Do you know if they have the diastatic power figures anywhere?
Oh, and I was so exited that I didn't realize that there about 6.5 hours away : /

I'll ask about the diastatic power figures when i stop by today. No wheat til the end of the month, but I'm getting some rye instead. Rye saison sounds like a good one for the cooler months! I'm stoked, I've been to oodles of breweries, but never to a malthouse.

Just got back from a trip where I took a half day to visit Riverbend malting. Got a 48# bag of their Heritage 6 row which is sort of a biscuity Munich malt. The kernel size is small, even for 6-row but I'm very excited about trying it. The flavor is very good. It was one if about a dozen bags available probably due to being short fills. All other malt in the warehouse was spoken for.
BTW; those guys are very friendly and accommodating. It's a small converted warehouse where they do floor malting by hand 1-2 tons at a time. Brian went out of his way to make it open for me and a buddy of mine to visit. Very nice.

Kid in the second pic looks a bit young to be hauling around a 48# sack

It took her a while to get it up the steps, but by the time I finished my beer, I discovered that she had made it.
