Kursk Malt malting house is located in Kursk Region which is a part of the Central Black Earth Region and belongs to AB InBev as an affiliate and a part of the brewery. The affiliate was closed in 2012.
During the 8 years of its successful operation, Russian brand "Kursk Malt" has gained an excellent reputation and has become well-known among the brewers. It became possible because the company management has always been focused on constant improvement of both the production process and the malt quality. A new roasting plant equipped with two Czech roasting drums was commissioned in 2016 and allowed to offer a new line of special malt varieties of 20-140 EBC to clients. Now, the malting house produces 17 types of barley, wheat, and buckwheat malts. Production volume for classic malts 125 000 tons per year. The capacity of the malt roasting facilities 6 500 tons. Since 2012, the malting plant has provided malt export supplies to 18 countries on 4 continents.

The laboratory personnel keep a close watch on each stage of malting starting from barley reception up to malt shipment.
Also, they perform quality control of grain on each truck at the reception area which allows forming homogeneous batches based on the barley variety and its specification.
Apart from that, samples from the steeping, germination and kilning areas are analyzed on the daily basis; the quality of produced malt is routinely checked as well.
An extended malt analysis in terms of the specification requirements is performed when a silo is filled completely.
Based on the received results malt batches are formed and blended afterwards with the following shipment in bags or in bulk.
Malt quality control is also performed at these stages together with the preparation of required shipment documents.
