Fritz Pilsner, Skagit Valley, 1 ounce


 Product Description

ATTN: All grains are now sold by the OUNCE instead of by the pound. E.g. a quantity of "2" indicates 2 oz. An order of "3lb and 5oz" would be input as a quantity of "53".

This (slightly annoying) change will allow our online store to link to our brick-and-mortar inventory data and update in real time, which we hope will make it worth your while! This way, our website will show when a product is low or out of stock, so we don't have to call and disappoint you after you've already placed your order.

Our previous setup that allowed the options of lbs and oz on the same product was created by a useful but ugly workaround on the back end. Unfortunately, our e-Commerce platform's inventory tracking does not allow for multiple units of measure for the same SKU and also does not allow for decimals. This means that we have to track each product by the smallest quantity in which it is sold - in the case of grains, this means tracking in oz. 

Here is a table to help with your conversion:

1lb = 16oz
2lb = 32oz
3lb = 48oz
4lb = 64oz
5lb = 80oz
6lb = 96oz
7lb = 112oz
8lb = 128oz
9lb = 144oz
10lb = 160oz

We welcome your feedback and appreciate your understanding!


Fritz is a Washington State University developed barley. Originally for dry-land farming on the east side of Washington, trials on the West Side found that it grows plumper and has more flavor on the west side of the state. The goal for breeding this barley was to reduce the Proanthocyanidin levels that contribute chill haze and permanent haze to beers. This goal was achieved and the malt can help brew clearer beers. Great for all styles of beers, especially those where clarity is important.

Originally named NZ-151, then Richard, WSU eventually landed on the name ‘Fritz'. Fritz produces brilliantly clear beers without additional help from clarifying agents. It pairs really well with hops and can lay a lovely base from them to play off. Brewers use this in lighter bodied beers, allowing the malt to provide a bit of balance.
