Receiving Bagged Malt

Before signing the shipment Bill of Lading, each bag and / or pallet must be inspected. Look for torn or broken bags and insure every bag and pallet is accounted for. You can reference the pallet contents sheet attached to each pallet. It is easiest to look over the products as they are being unloaded, but if more time is needed to double check, the driver must wait!

If any problems arise:

  • First, please note how many bags were shorted, broken, or any other circumstances on the Bill of Lading before signing.
  • Call Cargill Malt at 1-800-669-6258 within 72 hours to report any issues. A freight claim may need to be filed on your behalf, and is most successful when the problem is noted on the Bill of Lading.

Please make sure any employees involved in unloading malt follow this procedure.

Receiving Bulk Malt

To ensure the best quality of malt, we suggest the following:

  • Ask the driver for documentation of the trailer pre-load cleanout.
  • Inspect condition of malt and trailer before unloading.
  • Insist upon a slow and steady load-out of malt into silo.
    (Malt should not be loaded out at a rate greater than 4 psi.).
  • The Bill of Lading should not be signed until malt is fully unloaded and inspected. The driver is required to note the unload pressure and unload time before it is signed by the receiver. Problems should be noted on the Bill of Lading.
  • If you have any questions at the time of unloading, don't hesitate to call us at 1-800-669-6258. The driver must wait if you have any concerns.
Malt Storage

All grain suppliers do their utmost to provide a product that is insect free. However, once the product leaves their plant or warehouse, it is beyond their control. We recommend the following preventive measures:

  • Inspect the malt area at regularly scheduled intervals. This is of particular importance when the room temperature is above 64 F.
  • Malt should be stored in a clean, cool, dry area.
  • To reduce the likelihood of insect activity, you may choose to fumigate periodically.
  • For best results, we recommend using all milled products within 3 months and all whole kernel products within 6 months of receipt.
Malt Analysis
  • Malt analysis or malt specifications can be accessed through our website at Tech Center - Lot Analysis Program using lot numbers.
  • We also fax the malt analysis for bagged product upon request.
  • Bulk load reports are automatically faxed without request.
