Here we share the Australian Malting Barley Harvest report 2020-21 from our supply partners at Malteurop Australia. The good news is we have a very good harvest due to great conditions thoughout the Australian spring and summer – plenty of moisture and few extremely hot days. Nationally malting barley yield is up 29% and 10% in Victoria. Protein levels are within the 10-11.5% range and screenings are excellent with 90% above 2.5mm and less than 2% below 2.2mm screen sizes. Spartacus and Planet remain the dominant barley varieties currently being grown in Australia with Compass, La Trobe and Westminster falling in behind the big two varieties. KIWI is the NEW! variety from the Malteurop Breeding Program which offers superior malting qualities and is progressing well through Barley Australia accreditation and craft brewer trials. If you are interested to buy or try Malteurop NEW! Kiwi Malt variety please reach out to us at Service@BeerCo.com.au We expect NEW! Harvest 2020/21 Malteurop Kiwi Pilsen Malt to be available to brewers and Distillers from April 2021.
