We sell base malts in two different ways;

  • Prepackaged: We weigh, bag, and label for your convenience. Milling is FREE, if required.
  • Bulk: We weigh and bag as ordered, saving us time and materials. Milling is FREE.

The difference is that prepackaged grains that need milling have to be opened, milled, and re-bagged, wasting the original bag and label. We pass the savings onto you. If you need milling, consider ordering Bulk Malts instead of Prepackaged Malts.

Pilsner malt is a German, lager-style base malt produced from high-quality, 2-row spring barley. It contributes a pale-straw color to wort and adds mild, malty-sweet flavor with gentle notes of honey. A very flexible grain with high extract efficiency, it exhibits excellent lautering properties and yields optimum results for any brewing process from the simplest to the most complicated mashing regimen. Pilsner malt also provides the finished beer with substantial body and mouthfeel, as well as good foam development and head retention. Well-suited for use with any beer style, the malt is a particularly good choice for continental or American lagers, non-alcoholic or alcohol-reduced beers.

Substitution Note:  Lager malt is the British version of Pilsner malt. It is kilned at slightly higher temperatures, from 55°C to 82°C. Substituting Pilsner when the recipe calls for Lager Malt will result in almost identical results, but 2-Row can also be used.
