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.

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.
