The bio chemical composition of barley is highly affected the beer quality and the economic efficiency of the brewing process. A large number of parameters had been important to define malting quality. Samples were collected from barley breeding research center at Holeta which were verified and released malt barley varieties. Varieties used for the study were Holker, Bekoji-1, EH-1847, Bahati, Sabini, Grace, Travller, Beka, Ibon 174/03, Miscal -21, HB-1533 and HB-1307. The malt quality traits were evaluated according to the European brewery convention methods and the value were in the range grain size (88.5-97.5), germination energy (96-98.5), malt moisture content (3.6-6.7), protein content (10.1-13.5), soluble protein (3.9-7.7), kolbach index (35.5-48.8), thousand kernel weight (34-42.8), extract (73.8-80.9), color of wort (3.7-7), PH of wort (5.5-6.1) and friability (31.6-90.2). From all the varieties Holker, Travller, Sabini, Bekoji-1, Grace, Bahati and Beka were acceptable grain and malt quality traits according to the brewing specification.
