Represents 8.6% of barley seeded in Western Canada

  • Predominant malting barley grown in western Canada in 2021
  • Excellent Brewing Characteristics
  • Lower protein and enzyme levels than AC Metcalfe
  • Provides excellent balance among malting barley varieties
  • High-yielding variety with high kernel weight and plumpness, and low grain protein content
  • Shorter and stronger straw than AC Metcalf and CDC Copeland, and resistant to spotted net blotch, netted net blotch, and spot blotch
  • High malt extract, good protein modification, low levels of wort beta-glucans, and intermediate level of starch-degrading enzymes
  • Excellent combination of agronomic traits and malting quality
  • High levels of start-degrading enzymes
  • Exhibits excellent brewing performance
  • Production declined drastically in 2021
  • Excellent agronomic traits and disease resistance
  • Shorter and stronger straw, and heavier and plumper kernels than AC Metcalfe and CDC Copeland
  • Resistance to spotted net blotch, surface-borne smuts and stem rust, and moderate resistance to fusarium head blight (FHB)
  • High extract, moderate to high enzymes, and relatively low FAN levels
