A classic American Pilsen malt with a very smooth, clean flavor. Use in lagers or, for a change, try it in pale ales and IPAs, especially when a very light colored beer is desired. This malt is slightly under-modified - it still works with a single infusion mash, but for those interested in going the extra mile, it's a great candidate for a decoction mash schedule as well.

It arrived quickly. I found it very forgiving and easy to use. I will note, however, it has a delicate malt flavor. Even so, I've used it in a bunch of different styles just to see what I could do with it, each one came out great.
Crisp, clean, aromatic. Worked perfectly in a pilsner for me, but I use it in almost all of my IPAs these days as well.
I ordered malts to brew a German doppelbock. Munich malt, Vienna malt, Pilsen malt, and a little bisquit malt. For the 10 gallon recipe, with 28 lb of grain and an O.G. 1074, the beer is wonderfully rich, and will be lagered in time for the holiday season.
The grains were all fantastic and mashed right on target. I can hardly wait to sample it.
I highly recommend Midwest for the best grains for your brewing session.
