Quality of western Canadian malting barley 2015

Newdale

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.
