Doing my part to add to the malt supply (we started harvest)

Thought you all might to see beer in its infancy. We just started cutting our barley. It looks good and should easily make malt quality.

Wow, that's cool. Thanks for the pictures. Do you send all that barley to Briess or something for malting?

The local malt plant is called Malteurop. It is owned my some French company. The other option is to sell to Anheuser Busch...or should I say InBev.

Nope it is a brand new 9770. Wish we owned it...but it cost three times my house. Just renting this year.

I hear that. I got to see my first Ag-Bagger in operation a couple of weeks ago (rented for the day w/operator). Talk about boring. I watched for about 30 minutes and then went inside. When I came out 7 hours later they were still at it and had only moved about 300 feet.
