1KG Gladfields Lager / Pilsner Malt


1KG Gladfields Pilsner Malt

Priced per 1KG - available in increments of 1g


Gladfield Pilsner Malt (also known as Lager Malt) is made from 2-row English and European bred barley varieties. Only plump low-protein 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. Our carefully controlled kilning 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.
