Quality of barley selected for malting in 2014

CDC Kindersley

CDC Kindersley is a newer early maturing, high yielding variety descended from CDC Kendall. CDC Kindersley modifies easily, resulting in high friabilities and low levels of wort beta glucan. Its relatively high FAN and enzyme levels make it well suited for adjunct or high gravity brewing.
