For a variety of European style lagers, Weyermann Floor Malted Pilsner Malt can be specified for up to 100% of the grist. For Bohemian Pilsners, European Lagers, and full-bodied international ale or lager styles of beer, Floor Malted pilsner produces clear, bready, subtly sweet wort with hints of crust and light toast. The overall clarity of flavor and aroma created by the malt provides an excellent base for the hops in Czech style pilsners to really pop through the malt.
Traditional, authentic floor malt produced in the Czech Republic according to Weyermann® quality standards, Floor Malted Pilsner is created from Czech Grown 2-Row Spring barley.
