June Micro-Maltster Tour # 2

As you can see from the post title, this was to run in June along with the other Micro-Maltster “tours”, I now attempt to fill in what I missed in the 2nd half of June…


Valley Malt of New England is located in the farming town of Hadley.  You can get Organic Rye Malt, Chocolate malt, Hard Red Winter wheat amongst other offerings.

They appear to be tight with local CSA’s and are expanding to get grain from a much bigger plot of land. But as with Rebel Malting their primary goal is, “To provide the Northeastern craft and home brewer with artisanal malt from locally grown grains.”

You can tell the difference when it is fresh ingredients.  Just try it with Farmer’s Market fruits or your own vegetables.
