Quality of western Canadian malting barley 2015
Newdale continues to represent a small but consistent share of barley selected for malting each year. With good friability and low levels of β-glucans, it performs well in the brewhouse. Its moderate levels of enzymes, soluble proteins and FAN make Newdale well-suited for all-malt brewing.

- Footnote 1
Values represent weighted averages based on tonnage of composite samples received.
- Footnote 2
Newdale not included in 2014 Harvest Survey due to lack of sufficient number of samples.
- Footnote 3
Indicates weight of samples represented in this survey; does not represent amounts commercially selected.
- Footnote 4
Moisture not representative of new crop moisture levels as samples were not collected or stored in moisture-proof containers.
