Gladfield’s Pilsner Malt
Also known as: Pale and/or Lager Malt
Gladfield Pilsner Malt is made from 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.
Use: As a base malt for any beer style. It is light in colour and imparts a sweet, clean flavour when brewed.
Rate: Up to 100%
Shelf life: At least one year when stored properly in dry conditions.
