We pay significant attention to the raw material. The first main conditions for good malt are the field and farmer, with excellent seeds, varieties, weather conditions, technology and know-how. Our farmers meet at regular local field days organized by Lycos, where they get advice from experts. All the results and benchmarks are evaluated in an annual field day.
We appreciate the importance of cooperating with growers, seed companies and trade companies providing pesticides and fertilizers.
The Territory: radius 100 km, plus imports from the Czech Republic, Hungary and Austria
The Quality: most fertile areas with black soil lands
The Spring varieties: Overture, Kangoo, Sunshine, Irina and Sebastian
The Winter varieties: Wintmalt and Casanova
One of our targets is continuous research into the best varieties suited for malting and with great processability in the brewery. Most of our barley is analysed for varietal purity and is evaluated in production for their impact on critical parameters, especially AAL.
