Situated approximately 13km southeast of the Perth CBD, Perth Maltings was first commissioned in 1978. The malt house has an annual production capacity of 50,000 tonnes.
The plant has controlled by state-of-the-art computerised technology from barley intake, through to barley cleaning, processing, storage and out loading of the finished malt. This ensures that precise processing parameters are achieved to deliver a consistent, quality product to the brewer or distiller.
During 2021 United Malt Group will invest in a kiln upgrade at a cost of $27 million allowing for future production capacity expansion.

- Batch size 155 tonnes
- On-site malt storage 12,000 tonnes
The entire plant is computer monitored and is designed for maximum economy in the utilisation of all resources.
Steeping configuration incorporates 7 x 22.2 tonnes capacity conical steeping tanks with multiple immersion steeping, aeration and CO2 extraction across two floors.
