Buckwheat is not a cereal, but rather a knotweed plant. However, buckwheat fulfills the same purpose in the brewing process as the various cereals – supplying starch for fermentation. In doing so, buckwheat differs in taste from cereals while being completely gluten-free. However, it can be malted at any time.



Spelt is an ancient grain variety that has recently experienced a renaissance in both cultivation and consumer demand. The trend toward healthier diets has helped spelt regain importance. Spelt can also be processed into specialty malts.



Rye as a basic ingredient for rye malts and roasted malts is an important component of dark and craft beers. Various rye products are also used in the baking and food industries.
