I like the brand and the small size prevents me from having to pay exorbitant shipping costs otherwise associated with the 55 lb. sack.

I have not tried to make a lager in quite a while and thought I would take advantage of the winter weather.

Best Pilsner Malt for a German-style, Saltine-cracker Pilsner Malt Taste!
I enjoy a German malt with that Saltine cracker-focused Pilsner Malt taste; BestMalz Pilsen Malt provides that flavor more than some other brands of Pilsner malt (that I also enjoy), and with some subtlety still.

If you want Saltine cracker taste "cranked up to 11" then go get Best Heidelberg Pilsner malt instead, or blend BestMalz Pilsen with Heidelberg to control the level of saltine cracker pilsner malt taste.

Not just for brewing
Works great added to bread for a better rise. Just need a blender and 00 sifter.
