List of maltsters?
« on: February 08, 2014, 07:18:02 AM »
Id like to update my beersmith to include as many grains and maltsters as possible, has anyone come by a list of maltsters available in the USA by chance? Or know of a list already compiled with the pertinent info for each grain?

Cheers,
Jeff

This by grain type, not maltster.
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/wiki/index.php/Malts_Chart

Northern brewer has information for the malts they carry, but it is not in a spreadsheet. Some have more information than others.

 Example. Open the additional information form more specifications.

So Ive started with Briess and there website has a fair bit of info on it.  So much so that im not sure what all of it means!

Example
http://www.brewingwithbriess.com/Assets/PDFs/Briess_PISB_2RowBrewersMalt.pdf

If you look at that PDF under they typical analysis what do the following columns entail
Plump(does this confer to kernal size?)
Thru(is this a % that will go threw the mill because its to small?)
Extract FG, Dry Basis (obviously sugar yield, but how would i convert that to Gravity?)
Extract CG, Dry Basis(Converted gravity?  See FG notes)
S/T(?????)

Plump is kernel size.
Thru ? I think it might be what goes through a standard screen sieve.
FG = Fine Grind
CG = Course Grind
S/T = gives an indication of modification, that is fully modified. Soluble nitrogen/total nitrogen.

Remembered this, it might help.

Beersmith has some addons for the desktop version that include different maltsters. I know Briess is in there.

Seems this may be a fools errand, not all maltsters post their typical analysis in an easy to find place with all the pertinent information.

This is true. You might ask them for a typical analysis for the various malts.

Brewers supply group has a limited amount of info for the malts they carry.
http://bsgcraftbrewing.com/Malt.html

Country Malt group also has limited info.

I used to get a lot analysis with my grain at Country Malt. That was back before they "lost" my info so I lost my grandfathered direct buyer's status. I don't mind paying LHBS prices for grain, but their Illinois warehouse is closer to me than any retail shop.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

Durst in Germany.

A local place, small.

There are some others not available to Homebrewers AFAIK, Bamberg Malz for example.

Not sure how detailed you wish to be.  This is Colorado's maltster:
