Growers sold millions of dollars worth of Oregon barley last year. But the product is mostly untested for use in beer. Oregon State University professor Pat Hayes is changing that with a mini-malter. He wants to bring in testers, making a sample run to show that Oregon barley has the same qualities as the Oregon grape does.” 

Currently, to test malt barley requires tons of the grain. When the mini-malter is online they'll only need about 250 pounds.
