Vienna Malt

Vienna Malt is cured at slightly higher temperatures than pilsner malt. Consequently Vienna Malt gives a golden colored beer and increases body and fullness. Due to the higher curing temperature, the enzyme activity of Vienna Malt is slightly lower than that of pilsner malt. Flavor of Vienna Malt is subtle, including maltiness, some sweetness and hints of caramel aromas. Slightly nutty sensations can also be found.

BREWER`S CLASSIC Viking Vienna Malt DID YOU KNOW? Vienna type beers are typically served from big beer glasses of one liter. Due to a bit higher alcohol content of those beers and good drinkability of that style this may lead to “bierkopf” phenomena next morning. Be careful!

Storage & Packaging

Production and packaging Vienna 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 (< 20ºC), 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
