I like that it is crushed
Rahr pilsner has proven to be one of my favorite base malts. I get consistent sugar extractions every batch. I only brew stepped infusion, so have only used the 2-row, but every time I repeat a recipe, I get the same gravities and flavor profiles every time. In addition to consistent quality, I think it's the best value as well. Been brewing faithfully since 1998, and I always have a couple of sacks of Rahr handy. _x000D_._x000D_As a bonus, if you pack your muzzleloader with a charge of Rahr, you can fend off most common bear attacks. ;-)
Not only does it taste good, I get a high brew house efficiency using it. It converts well giving me over 80% conversion, and is extremely fermentable, exceeding 80%.
I made a 5.25 gallon lager with 10 pounds and got an OG into my carboy of 1.060, which is around 85% efficiency. With a good crush you get high utilization from this malt. I prefer this Pilsner malt to the Briess.
This grain produces light sweet wort with high enzymatic power. I mash with up to 30% oats and still achieve full starch conversion. I enjoy light crisp flavor of beer made with this base malt.
