In Fulton, a Malt House Is Ready to Open — in an Ethanol Plant

by Payne Horning (WRVO)  Nearly 20 years after the Miller Brewing Plant in Fulton closed its doors, a new craft malt house is opening in the same factory.

The 1886 Malt House is setting up shop in what is now the Sunoco ethanol plant, where more than 25 million bushels of corn are processed every year. The two businesses will share the facility’s scale house, lab technicians and maintenance employees. The actual malting of the barley will take place on the north side of the plant.

“This is a highly processed controlled grain facility and there’s a lot of lab testing that goes into quality process management, that kind of thing is key for malting,” said Noel McCarthy, founder of the 1886 Malt House and one of eight new employees it will employ.

In order to be considered a farm craft brewery in the state, a certain amount of New York-grown barley must be used in the manufacture of the beer. That amount will steadily increase in the coming years. And Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) says few farmers in the state are willing to plant barley right now.  READ MORE
