“The quality of Murphy and Rude's malt is bar none.


There's so much technique and science that goes into malting, and all malt is definitely not created equal.”

Crooked Run Fermentation

“The quality of Murphy and Rude's malt is off the charts. It's no secret that the cost of materials and ingredients has increased over the last few years. Never fear, this has allowed us to reconsider our needs, cut down on shipping costs, and switch to the highest quality malt to make the highest quality beer.”

Elation Brewing

“Hands down the best grains I have gotten my hands on and at an amazing price point too.


If you are able to, do yourself a favor and get this grain!”
