Before anything, we mill our own grain to ensure quality. At Blue Valley Spirits, it’s imperative that we see and know the grains that produce our spirits. We then move through the process, on-premise at our Kremmling distillery.
First, we utilize the Mash Tun to cook our Root Shoot Malting grains so that they release their starches. The enzymes used from malted grains break down starches into simple sugars. This process is called mashing. Next, we transfer the mash over to the fermenter.
