Applications & Usage

Application Description Viking Red Active Malt is ideal malt for any ales, dark lagers, festival beers and bocks for underlining malty flavors and full bodied taste, but also boosting up the red tinted colors. The strong enzyme activity gives good potential for developing recipes with adjuncts or non active malts. With this malt if you are heading to strong reddish color you do not need to dilute color down with pale malts. Dosage up to 100%

Storage & Packaging

Production and packaging Viking Red Active Malt is produced in Finland. Available in bulk, big bags and 25 kg 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.

You should always keep the malts away from hot surfaces. Do not inhale the malt dust.
