Blonde pilsner-style lagers
Up to 100%
Haná is where this barley originated, the Hana valley in Czech Moravia. It was used to produce the very first Pilsner beers back in the 1840s in Bohemia and became the progenitor for the vast majority of successful lager barley varieties to this day.
It brings that perfect bready, crisp continental flavour to all lager types, especially Pilsners and Helles beers. This will promote fantastic head retention. Haná is exceptionally pale in colour. This malt can be used in a single temperature infusion mash or a step temperature mash, however, this depends on the crop results and so it’s worth checking with the technical team as to the current condition.
