Blades of barley

The Cheese City Beer barley has emerged and has been up for a few days now. This picture was taken early in the morning so you can still see the droplets of dew on the tips of several of the blades. At this point it basically looks like blades of grass that are growing in evenly-spaced rows. This type of barley is referred to as 2-row barley. 2-row barley is the most popular type of malting barley and I’ll be discussing this in more detail in future posts. Check out the Cheese City Beer Facebook page for a few more pictures.
