Briess Pilsen Malt

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

1.2° L Briess Malting - Briess Pilsen is their lightest colored base malt available.  It will produce a very light colored, clean and crisp wort with a delicate malty flavor.  Excellent choice as a 2-row base malt for all beer styles, particularly lagers.  Great for malt focused beers, as it's clean character allows for the full flavor of specialty malts to shine through.

Briess malts are solid. This one is very lightly colored and a great backbone for almost any style.

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.

Excellent Pilsner Malt
I just sampled my Munich Helles after lagering and could not be more pleased. The beer was made with 8.5 pounds Briess Pilsen a step mash 142 and 154 with a half hour rest each, fermented with Wyeast 2308 and I used German Tradition hops. The beer is balanced and this malt provided a fabulous smooth malt flavor. Very drinkable. I am attempting to clone Spaten and I am very close. I have also used this in my Alt recipes with satifactory results. I will continue to use this malt.

A nice pilsner malt
I used this in a tripel and it turned out great. The malt flavor was amazing. It was a little sweet but that was an error on my part. I will be using this malt again.
