Informative? Was it worth it?

Yep, really informative and a good investment of my time and money, meet new people and made some good contacts :)

It wonít make me brew better beer per se, but it was really fun and informative speaking and hearing people from the industry besides brewers.  Thereíre was farmers, maltster, brewing engineer from Belgium, chemist, biologist, and biochemist and brewers (Grimross, Petit Sault, one from La PocatiŤre)

Dany from MaltBroue is looking at ďfranchisingĒ his malthouse or his malting setup and thereís one malting barley producer from the st-john valley looking at getting into malting with Danyís setup.  Thereís also talk of one in PEI and maybe a few in Quebec as well in the future but nothing confirmed yet

And looks like the grains producer (from around here anyway) will get more into growing malting barley instead of just feed barley or else.  Itíll be the ďrotation cropĒ for some of the potatoes growers
.
The goal is no less to have local grown barley, malted here in the Maritimes without shipping it all over the places and brewed locally so that we can truly say thatís itís a 100% local beer 

Exciting times for the brewing industry in NB :)

I wonder if Moosehead and Molson would buy up most of the stock, or if it would be too expensive for them?

I donít think itíll be a product that interests them. 1- itíll be a bit more expensive then G&P (or else) and 2- itíll be a malt with more flavour (as compared to 2-row) for their bland product lol
But I can tell you that Grimross and Petit Sault (and more) intend to use their product.  And a bunch of micros from Quebec already use maltbroue crystals (and now the pale malt). Petit Sault next pale ale will be made 100% with Maltbroue malt.  I also just did a pale ale with it and itís pretty good stuff :)

I also have some malts from them if anyone (in F'ton area) is interested in trying a small amount of them, let me know!  I just made a pale ale with their base malt, but it's still in the 2ndary so no feedback yet.
