From Barley to Malt: The Malting Process

The word "malt" refers to several products of the malting process.  These include the grains to which this process has been applied, the sugar derived from such grains (e.g., baker's malt used in various cereals), or a product based on malted milk which is made up of malted barley, wheat flour and milk. Malting is process that takes grain, allows it to germinate, then halts the growing process with the application of heat.  Canadian barley malt is principally used in the production of beer. Canadian malt makers (maltsters) take barley and submit it to a nine-step process to turn it into malt.
