Mecca Grade Gateway Under-modified Wind-Malt 50 lb. Bag

$84.40

Description

Mecca Grade is an estate malthouse located on 1,000 irrigated acres in Madras, Oregon. A grain growers’ paradise, their location in the rain shadow of the Cascades provides hot, dry days and cool nights perfect for growing specialty seed and grain.

Much like a vineyards’ location determine the character of its grape varietals, our grains are unique to Mecca Grade due to their uniform growth within a 2-mile radius of the malthouse. As such, our malts are truly unlike anything else available.

“Wind-malt” is a long-forgotten style of Belgian malt that was allowed to air-dry in the lofts of barns. To our knowledge, it has never been produced commercially in North America. We’ve revived it with “Gateway,” a malt that is bursting with the aroma of fresh-cut hay while being nearly translucent in color. Gateway is perfectly-suited for decoctions, step mashing, and is the missing ingredient when brewing historic styles of beer.
