Disease Reaction: Resistant to Fusarium head blight, covered smut, false loose smut, black semi-loose smut. Vulnerable to true loose smut

Malting Characteristics

Very similar malting profile to CDC Kendall; higher enzymes, higher extract, higher soluble protein, average beta-glucan. Lox-less malt

Brewing Quality Traits

Good overall brewhouse performance, very fast conversion time, good brewhouse yield and material efficiencies. Lox-less positively effects beer foam retention and beer flavor stability
