Great packaging
Awsome packaging. I can order ahead of time and not worry about freshness. It would be nice if the COA could be attached to the bag.

Makes a Fantastic Lager
The German lager I recently made with this malt is one of the best lagers I have tasted to date. Fantastic in fact! Light and crisp. The only item in the grain bill was 10-LB of this malt and brewing salts. I used 2 packs of S-23 yeast rehydrated in water with 20-g of GoFerm Protect. I fermented 4-days at 54-F and 10 more days at 58-F. I transferred and aged the beer for 4-weeks under kegging pressure. I will make this again!

Excellent Base Malt
Provides a solid, low-color base for a wide variety of beer styles. Use in place of anything that you would use a European pilsner malt in. Also good in some American styles.

I like this malt! I used to use Weyermann pilsner which is a great malt. This is very good at half the price. Have used it in many repeat recipes, and I can't tell the difference except that it is a little lighter in color.
