Unquestionably, absolute compliance with strict statutory limits relating to pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, mycotoxins and nitrosamines is guaranteed. This is checked by independent laboratories on a regular basis.

We refine the high-grade brewing raw material with the most modern malting technology under continuous quality control.
BEST steeping technology: careful purification, airing, CO2 extraction and climatization is the optimal preparation for the germination process.
