Cargill IdaPils® (1.4 – 1.7 L)

Our signature product, Cargill IdaPils® is malted from the finest Idaho Harrington, contract-grown on irrigated farms for a consistently low total protein and high-extract malt. This is an excellent choice for use in light lagers and Pilsner type beers.

Cargill Rocky Mountain White Wheat™ (2.6 – 3.2 L)

Wheat may be used in amounts up to 60% in creating many styles of wheat beer and in smaller amounts (5-10%) to aid in head retention.
