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.

Viking malts are a northern European malt and in order to stay true to style I like to purchase malts that will most closely represent the beer I am making. In the case of this malt it is to make Keptinis

It's my go to base malt. I ended up buying 5 of the 10 lbs packs though considering it was signifacntly cheaper than buying the 55 lbs sack that doesn't qualify for free shipping.

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.

lower efficiency, but lower cost
I tested my starting gravity after brewing a batch with this malt and the great western, and with everything else held constant, I noted a slightly lower gravity reading, which I think means there's just less sugar to extract from this grain . . . or it may have been older or dryer - hard to tell exactly. Either way, I guess you get what you pay for.

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!
