Bohemian Pilsner Malt is a lager-style base malt produced from Czech barley varieties Bojo and Tolar. The Czech-grown grain is processed specifically for “Bohemian” characteristics to impart a full body, golden-blond color, and complex maltiness to the finished brew. It's perfect for authentic Bohemian pilsners and Belgian ales, but is well-suited to any beer style that requires a solid malt presence.
Application: Lager and ales up to 20% of grist.
Munich Malt has its origins in Germany where traditional beers gained their rich malty character from the addition of specialist malts with enhanced colour and flavour. These products are made on a conventional malt kiln using processes that promote higher levels of soluble protein and simple sugars which interact when heat is applied to produce a product rich in melanoidins and other colour and flavour compounds.
The malty flavours associated with Munich Malt contrast with the caramel-like flavours associated with crystal malts and the golden to reddish hues to the colour is popular in some beer styles.
Vienna Malt is a superb example of this classic malt. Less sweet than Pale Ale Malt, it is a rich malty 2-Row base malt that offers complexity and depth with a toasted note at the finish for your classic Vienna, Oktoberfest and Marzen beers. It finishes exceptionally clean and, at 3.5º Lovibond, contributes light golden hues. Use in any beer style that benefits from rich malty character. Sufficient enzyme level to support the inclusion of even the most demanding specialty malts without extending the brewing cycle.
Produced from quality wheat. Ideal foundation grain for pale Weizenbiers, such as Hefeweizen and Kristallweizen. Essential ingredient in North American pub wheat ales. Adds creaminess, body, and complex wheat flavors to top-fermented beers.
Flavor: notes of bread, nuts, biscuit, toffee and light caramel
Base malt for all wheat beers. Light wheat is also used in smaller quantities to obtain a ‘bread’ touch.
Top quality 2-row winter malting barley is widely recognised as the best raw material for traditional ale malt.
Low protein barleys are sourced from local farmers that are qualified as the very best malting barley growers.
During malting, high cast moistures and a balance of germination time and temperature guarantee an even, well modified malt which is ideally suited to ale brewing. The characteristic higher colour and balanced sweet, malty flavour results in this malt being one of the most popular and distinctive malt styles.
Pale Ale Malt is suited to infusion mashing and top fermentation which typifies traditional ale brewing, but is also very well suited for ale brewing using more modern techniques.
