By raising the percentage of Organic Black Malt in malt bill the changes in taste can be found quickly. Dosage rates more than 10% are rare.

Storage & Packaging

Production and packaging Organic Black Malt is produced in Finland and Poland. As a standard malt is available in bulk, containers, big bags and 25 kg pp bags.
Storage and safety Malt should be stored in a cool (< 20°C), dry (< 40 RH %), odorless and pest free place. Under these conditions unopened bags of malt can be stored for a minimum of 2 years from the date of bagging and unopened bags of crushed malt for a minimum 1 year from the date of bagging. Opened bags are beyond Viking Malt’s control, and we always recommend that opened bags are used at once. Anyhow, if opened bags are carefully re-sealed and then stored under the recommended conditions, they are expected to endure the storage times mentioned above. You should always keep the malts away from hot surfaces. Do not inhale the malt dust.
