Quality of barley selected for malting in 2015

CDC Kindersley

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