Harvest Hop and Malt
We're growing! .Recent changes at the maltery have increased our production from four 650 kg batches a month to over six batches. An order has also been placed for a new 1.5 tonne malting system, to be built by a Canadian manufacturer, to HH+M's unique design. The increased volumes will support growth at our existing customers, and, allow new customers to join the local malt movement.
We have been recognized by the Ontario Government with a Regional Premier's Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence!
We are pleased to announce that we have been granted organic certification from Ecocert.
Organic Rye and Wheat malt can be ordered now, and organic barley is being sourced for future production.
Non-organic malts will still be available.
Muskoka Brewery has released this year's Harvest Ale, the first time using all Ontario ingredients. A strong beer (6.7%), it features our wheat and rye malts. Check their website for availability.
The Maadmen recently profiled HH+M on their regular beer podcasts (Episode29). Check out www.themaadmen.com. Episode 33 profiles an all HH+M Belgain Pale Ale made by Elora Brewing.
Brewers' testimonials below:
Sleeman's brewed a special beer for the University of Guelph's Ontario Agricultural College using all HH&M malts, made with Newdale barley, a descendant of OAC's groundbreaking barley varieties from decades ago. The university's response:
'On behalf of OAC and our OAC alumni a very big thank you for making it possible for them to enjoy Aggi Spirit beer on alumni weekend.
We heard only enthusiastic responses from our alumni about the quality of the beer, its great taste and the pleasure of being able to enjoy it in Johnston Hall and at the PCH venue for Conversation. Being able to have this beer helped to make the weekend more special.
And given how successful it was - we are looking forward to being able to serve one more batch for OAC's 140th celebration this September.'
Prud'homme Level 3 Class outside the Woolwich Arrow after a fine lunch and some Harvest Ales, made with our malt and Bertwell hops. The Prud'homme classes tour the HH&M operations as part of their in-depth education on beer. They took a bag of Pale malt with them and brewed a very tasty ale under the guidance of Paul Dickey, Cheshire Brewing.
