Pilsner Malt

Pilsner Malt is made from 2-row spring barley.Steeping and germination conditions are chosen to promote even germination and homogenous modification. The final air-on temperature in kilning is typically 80–85°C. Pilsner malt flavor is usually described as malty, slightly nutty and sweet. Great malt for all malt beers but there is enough activity and character for base malt use in many brewing applications.

Storage & Packaging

Production and packaging Pilsner Malt is produced in Finland, Poland, Sweden, Denmark and Lithuania. 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
