Timeless Seeds sells a product called Purple Prairie Barley. Whole seeds in a little bag. I grew it out and oddly it's a two row barley. All my other purple barley is 6 row. Ground some in blender of original bag. Made a few things with. Adds a nice purple color. Found an online video of someone brewing with it.
Western Montana garden, glacial lake Missoula sediment lacustrian parent material and shallow 7" silty clay loam mollisoil topsoil sometimes with added sand in places. Zone 6A with 100 to 130 frost free days
