Jay’s Brewing Malt Spotlight – Weyermann German Pilsner Malt

January 5, 2018

General posting

This week’s Jay’s Brewing spotlight is Weyermann German Pilsner Malt. This lager based malt is produced from high quality 2-row spring barley and was originally produced in the world renowned Bürger-Brauerei, or what is now called Pilsner Urquell, located in the Czech Republic. Concerning color and flavor, this malt is capable of producing a pale straw-color beer with a mild, malty sweet flavor with gentle notes of honey. German Pilsner features a high extract efficiency and excellent lautering properties. This Malt is drier and crisper than a Bohemian Pilsner with a bitterness that tends to linger more in the aftertaste; sometimes due to its higher attenuation. German Pilsner is great for use with any style of beer, and is a perfect choice for European or American lagers; these include: Vienna Lager(7A), Munich Dunke(8A), and Altbier(7B)

Malt Type: Base
Lovibond: 1.5-2.2
Usage: 100%

This and 58 other malts are available year-round at
Jay’s Brewing in Manassas, VA.
