Malting and Brewing with Organic Naked Barley

Join eOrganic for a webinar with Brigid Meints (Assistant Professor and Organic Barley Breeder at Oregon State University), who will share the latest research updates on malting and brewing with organic naked barley. She will provide background on naked barley, its potential benefits and downsides as an ingredient, and different projects that she and her collaborators have been working on to look at the effects of different protocols and varieties on malt and beer quality. This research is part of a larger OREI grant: “Developing Multi-use Naked Barley for Organic Farming Systems I, II, & III” (OREI grant 2023-51300-40964). The webinar takes place on May 16 at 11AM Pacific, 12PM Mountain, 1PM Central, 2PM Eastern Time and is free and open to the public.
