Would have chosen 50 lb bag but did not have free shipping and this ended up being cheaper to order 5 of these

Because a 55lb sack is a little much to ask of the USPS right now

Is the flavor profile for this malt similar to English malts like Maris Otter?
George D Randels on Jul 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Maris Otter goes through a much more extensive growing, malting and kilning process, than those of standard two-row, hence the additional costs, and dynamic flavor profile.
What is the diastatic power of this grain, & despite the name, can it also be used in lagers as well?
fletcher little on Jan 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The diastatic power (Lintner) of this malt is 85. Though Pilsner malts are traditionally used for lagers, this malt can still be used for a lager. Excluding the specialty malts ina grain bill, you can expect to get a more malty and toasty flavor when using this as a base malt for a lager.

Great for Added Maltiness
I've used this several times for different styles of beers, such as IPA, pale ale, ESB, porters, and stouts. Works wonderfully for when you need a more discernible malt flavor. really great in darker beers.

Great Base Malt
I make a lot of NEIPAs and this is my go to Base malt. The malt gives a nice glowing orange color and has great flavor. Highly recommended!
