Munich Light Malt - Viking Malt

Munich Light Malt - Viking Malt

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

6.6 °L - Viking Malt - Viking. Curing temperatures in the range of 110–120°C give the malt an aromatic, nutty character. The high curing temperature results in clearly reduced enzyme activities compared to Pilsner Malt.

Munich Malt is ideal malt for dark lagers, festival beers and bocks for underlining malty flavors and full bodied taste. The decreased enzyme activities have to be taken into consideration when designing the brewing recipe.

In 2016 Viking Malt and Danish Malting Group joined forces to better serve their customers. Now the new Viking Malt is the leading malting company in Northern Europe and supply raw materials and services to the global brewing, distilling and food industries. Viking Malt has 6 malthouses in areas where our distinctive Nordic barley is sourced: in Halmstad, Sweden; Vordingborg, Denmark; Lahti, Finland; Panevezys, Lithuania and in Sierpc and Strzegom, Poland. The annual malting capacity is close to 600 kilotons.

what is the diastatic power of this malt?
fletcher little on Nov 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: There is no diastatic power listed on the data sheet for this malt, but it does mention several times low enzymatic activity. There is a listing for saccharification at max 15, and I'm unable to find anywhere that clearly defines this in this context. But, I can speculate that the DP is possibly 15, since anything over 50 would be a moderate amount for conversion and this is "low".
