Malting Barley Quality Lab

High-quality malting barley is crucial to the success of Michigan’s craft malting and brewing industries. Barley should be tested at a lab that understands the quality factors that are important to maltsters and that uses standardized methodologies approved by the experts. Malting barley is tested at the UPREC Malting Barley Quality Lab utilizing methods outlined by the American Society of Brewing Chemists. Our lab participates in the ASBC check sample program to ensure confidence in results.
