[Member Webinar] Tasked With Terroir – One Approach To Defining Environmental Impacts On Malt Sensory and Function

September 8, 2022 @ 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Free – $20

Beer styles have long been described with reference to their geographical origin. Taking a cue from brewers, our work goes deeper by looking at how malt’s environmental origins, specifically minerals, can impact the final product via flavor and process. Preliminary results will be presented along with strong arguments for ionic composition as an integral piece to defining barley terroir.


Hannah Turner has been involved in plant science research for the past decade, receiving both bachelor’s and Masters’s distinctions, and has acted as Director of the Montana State University Barley, Malt & Brewing Quality Lab since 2016. Hannah’s research career began with the investigation of the pathways leading to starch production in plants while her current role revolves around malting and making grain starch accessible for the brewing and distilling process. MSU’s Barley, Malt & Brewing Quality Lab performs both research and service, providing data for the University’s Barley Breeding Program and industry members across the barley value network. Research focuses include innovative projects such as improved barley for craft malting, barley and malt flavor, and improved throughput analysis for breeding program selection. Hannah works closely with the American Society of Brewing Chemist’s Technical Committee, leading the Malt Subcommittee which works to develop and streamline methodologies for malt quality analysis. Hannah also serves as chair of the Guild’s Technical Working Group, which develops educational and practical tools for the industry. When not in the lab, Hannah spends time enjoying Montana with her three-year-old son.
