Quality of Western Canadian malting barley 2017 - Quality data for individual malting barley varieties

4. Quality data for individual malting barley varieties

For the second consecutive year CDC Copeland has remained the dominant malting barley variety grown in Western Canada in 2017. Its excellent brewing characteristics combined with lower protein and enzyme levels, provides an excellent balance within the portfolio of malting barley varieties.

In 2017, AC Metcalfe occupied the second largest area seeded with malting barley on the Prairies. Despite slightly lower production of AC Metcalfe in 2017 compared to 2016, this variety continues to be one of the most dominant malting barley variety grown in Western Canada. With high levels of extract and diastatic enzymes, its reputation for excellent brewing performance generates strong demand from both domestic and export markets.

The third most popular variety grown on the Prairies in 2017 was AAC Synergy. Its acreage has continuously increased since 2014. AAC Synergy is a newer high-yielding variety with relatively high kernel weight and plumpness. AAC Synergy is characterized by relatively low grain protein content. AAC Synergy has a desirable malting quality profile with high malt extract, good protein modification, low levels of wort beta-glucans, and intermediate levels of starch-degrading enzymes. Overall, AAC Synergy’s excellent combination of agronomic traits, disease resistance and malting quality makes it a desirable two-rowed malting barley variety for western Canadian producers and the malting and brewing industry.

The area seeded with Bentley decreased in 2017 compared to 2016; however still significant quantities were grown and selected in 2017. With high yields and good disease resistance, Bentley is an attractive choice for producers. Bentley’s consistently large kernels have the potential to deliver high levels of extract.

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.

The quality data for CDC Bow is reported in 2017 for the first time. CDC Bow is the recently registered (2016) high-yielding malting barley variety with excellent agronomic traits and disease resistance. Production of this cultivar in 2017 was still limited, therefore, the quality results presented in this report represent relatively small tonnage of samples received and analyzed.
