Mouterij Dingemans

The richness of Belgian malt tradition

Since 1875, the Dingemans family has been producing an extensive range of basic ingredients for the demanding Belgian and European brewer.

You have probably already tasted some of the great Belgian beers. As a supplier to most Belgian brewers, we are proud of our customers and the great beers they produce. Our malts are used in internationally renowned Trappist, Ale, Lambic, white- and abbey beers.

We are happy and grateful to make our contribution to these beers. Over the years we have distributed our malts further and further. Now brewers all over the world use our great Belgian malts.

Pilot projects

AlterBrew

Use of alternative grains for the production of innovative beers from high quality. By alternative grains we mean the ancient wheats such as einkorn, emmer, khorasan (Kamut®), and spelt, the pseudo grains amaranth, quinoa, buckwheat, as well as other grains such as sorghum, tritordeum and teff.

We focus on the malting of Einkoorn and Tritordeum.


Quality control

Control of the germination power (Grodex)

With this test we check how much % of the grains can germinate. The grains with a red dot are able to germinate.

Performing a malt analysis

We mimic the brewing process in our small mash baths. After filtering, we continue with the wort, on which we performe a complete malt analysis.

Follow-up of the malt germination

quality control device

With this device we measure the extract content, the viscosity and the pH.
