Description

Viking Pale Ale Malt is the perfect base malt for traditional Pale Ales, IPA's, Ambers, Browns, Porters, Stouts, etc.. As a traditional english style pale ale malt it has a high degree of modification making it very easy to mash. 
 
The rich maltiness adds layers of flavor to any ale. 
 
Viking Malt is one of the largest malting companies in the world and the largest roaster of specialty malts. They are the main malt supplier to the famous Carlsberg brewery. Viking is not well known in the USA because they haven't had good US distribution. Because MoreBeer! and MoreBeer! Pro is directly importing thousands of tons of malt we are stoked to offer you Northern European malt quality from one of the best malting companies in the world at lower than domestic malt pricing. 
 
Viking Malt has 6 malthouses in areas where distinctive Nordic barley are sourced: in Halmstad, Sweden; Vordingborg, Denmark; Lahti, Finland; Panevezys, Lithuania and in Sierpc and Strzegom, Poland.  The advantage of northern European malt is lower protein levels, good kernel size, and less amount of pesticides used due to the cold winters.

What is the diastatic power of this malt?
fletcher little on Mar 25, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Message from Viking Mal:

We don’t test diastatic power on Golden Ale, because it isn’t part of the general specification for that quality.
Our brewmaster told me that on average Golden Ale has some activity and the diastatic power is about 20 intner -> ~54 WK.

Versatile and efficient base malt
I just finished off a 55 pound bag of this malt. I used it to make everything from American Pale and Amber ales to English Brown to Milk Stout. Never any problems with efficiency or fermentation. Great color, too. Recommend this to anyone as a go-to base malt.

This 2 Row malted grain results in a wonderful light gold color and does not overwhelm the particular flavor I sought to create. Spruce tip!

Same extract rate as American 2 row. Fermentation started strong and finished faster than the American 2 row had in the past. I like this malt a lot.

Excellent Base Malt!
This is a great base malt, somewhere between pils and 2-row, a great light malt flavor with a low price and great flavor, acts more like pils than 2-row.

Poor Efficiency
Good flavor in a SMASH beer but low efficiency. I ordered milled as usual since I don’t have a mill but knew from the start efficiency would be low since it was mostly husks. Even did a 90 min mash hoping to compensate. Don’t know if that’s bad milling or bad grain but won’t be using again.
