Continental Lager Malt
Up to 100%
Crisp German Pilsner
At our Hamburg maltings we malt Danish and German spring barley to produce a classic German Pilsen style malt for lager production.
With a high protein content this malt benefits from a rising temperature programme and lautering, but our customers have also used it successfully in traditional UK brewhouses.
The higher molecular weight proteins give excellent head retention and mouthfeel. High levels of speciality malt and non-malted cereals can be used with this malt while maintaining fermentation vigour. This malt can be used in single temperature mashing but you may need to increase finings rates to drop out the additional protein.
Whatever the size, style and approach of your brewery, our maltsters are here to help. We’d love to hear from you, understand your malt needs and show how our malts can make all the difference to your beers and spirits.
