Don Moore, Canada Malting
Technical Brewing Breakout Session
"Nuances of Malt in Brewing,"
Don Moore has thirty-two years of commercial brewing experience under his belt, having brewed for many craft breweries, both large and small, and consulting to at least twenty new start-up projects for breweries and brewpubs. He traded in his boots and mash paddle to work on the raw ingredients side of the brewing industry first as a consultant, and now full-time for Canada Malting Company, producers of malted barley, wheat, oats, and rye. He currently works as a liaison between the CMC malt houses and the breweries that Country Malt provides for both bag and bulk sales for small- to medium-sized regional breweries and works closely with breweries that are transitioning from bag malt to silo malt. Don is based in scenic British Columbia and travels across all of North America to meet with brewers and discuss barley varieties, growing conditions, malt flavor profile, and technical support.
Aside from loving his job, Don enjoys spending time with his family, and, in good Canadian form, he likes football, hockey, and beer.
