Brian Podwinski, co-founder and head brewer of Blue Blood Brewing Company, has embarked on a new venture. He wants to begin malting grains for local brewers to use in their beer.
He has founded Nebraska Malt, a company dedicated to growing the supply of Nebraska-grown grain and malts for beer. Podwinski hopes to link up with local farmers who will grow grains. They will then malt these local grains for sale to Nebraska brewers and distillers as well as brewers around the country.
