North Star Pils™ - Rahr Malting

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

1.7 L - Rahr Malting Co- A base malt to set your compass by! Rahr North Star Pils™ is crafted to meet the requirements of brewers looking for a domestic pilsner malt with low color and low modification. It is malted to a target of 38-40° Kolbach to facilitate smooth lautering with any mash regimen. North Star Pils™ brings overtones of honey and sweet bread with supporting flavor and aroma notes of hay and nutty character. Suitable for any beer style, but particularly craft brewed versions of classic lager styles.

How is this different from Rahr Premium Pils?
Compared to Rahr Premium Pilsner, North Star Pils™ is a bit lower in both color and modification; in terms of sensory, North Star Pils™ has more “sweet” attributes vs. the more grainy & cracker attributes found in Rahr Premium Pils.

Rahr Pilsner malt crushed looks great
Making a west coast Pilsner beer and trying this grain out. After brewing was spot on with S.G. Nice color for style. Will use again

First pseudo pilsner
I brewed up a pseudo Pilsner using 10# of this and a touch of carafoam along with generous amounts of galaxy hops. Fermented at 90f using Omega Lutra. Came out nice. The sweetness from North Star complements well.
Fermentation was done in 36hrs. 1.049 to 1.010.

Great company to do business with.
This appears to be a good Pilsner and I have had great success using it and the fact that you had it with free shipping is unheard of. Always find great deals on your website. Keep putting your customers first and you will be amazed at your loyalty following.
