1KG Gladfields German Pilsner Malt

Priced per 1KG - available in increments of 1g


Gladfield German Pilsner Malt is made from 2-row English and European bred barley varieties. Only high nitrogen, plump barley are used to make our Pilsner Malt. This style of barley produces higher extracts and helps eliminate potential protein haze issues in the beer as well as being designed to make lautering easier. Our carefully Light kilning preceeded by a tradtional low and slow germination gives a clean malty character without adding too much colour. Pilsner or Lager Malt can be used to produce ales as well as lagers. This malt does have sufficient diastatic power to convert the addition of 10-20% coloured malts to the mash, but it is not designed for large amounts of unmalted adjuncts. Brewers should also note that it is important that the mash pH is controlled properly to obtain the best efficiencies and outcomes in the finished beer.
