What We Make.
At Blue Ox Malthouse, we combine modern technology with traditional floor malting methods and regionally produced grains to create consistent, unique, quality malts. We follow the highest quality standards using in-house and ASBC approved methods on all from field to finished product. Check back; we are constantly working to expand our product line.
Our clean, crisp Pale has mild sweet and grainy flavors and is fully modified for high extract and enzyme potential. Made from 2-row Newdale barley, our Pale elevates lighter styles like Kolsch, Blondes, Pales, Pilsners and as a foundational malt for any style.
Our lightly kilned Wheat malt provides flavors and aromas of sweet cereals and grains along with light color, high extract, and excellent potential for body. Maybe our favorite malt to see on the germination floor!
Our version of a Vienna malt, pronounced "VYE-enna" in a nod to the Maine town by the same name, comes packed with notes of hazelnuts, bread crusts and honey. Try to time your visit to the Malthouse when our Vienna is in the kiln - the smell is incredible.
Our Munich is a medium kilned malt gives flavors of toasted bread crust rounded by a deepbiscuity sweetness. Use as a foundational malt or as part of a recipe to lend a depth of flavor and color to any beer needing the direction of a complex malt.
The Legend barley variety is a unique addition to our lineup. In order to highlight the inherent grainy flavors and the terroir of Northern Maine where it was grown, we gently kilned the slightly undermodified kernels to achieve a traditional Pils style malt that is light in color.
