Description

Viking Pils is a traditional European Pilsner malt with a delicate malt sweetness that gives your lagers that extra something special. Viking Pils is the perfect base for all lagers and essential for Pilsners, Helles, Marzen, Bock, Vienna Lager, etc. 
 
When your making light lagers most brewers want the pils base malt to provide a bit of maltiness. It can be the difference between boring beer and amazing beer. We have gotten great feedback from pro brewers and many have switched to Viking after trying it.  
 
We also have several craft breweries using this malt for the commercial production of light colored Pales, IPA's, and Hazys. When compared to our Viking Xtra Pale the flavor of the Pils malt is just a bit lighter. Some brewers love this for their really light colored ales that are bursting with hop flavors.    
 
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.

Great Malt at a Great Price
I bought a sack of this malt almost 8 months ago and I love it. It’s got that great classic light crackery biscuity malty flavor that i crave in a Pilsner. The conversion is up there with the rest and the color is great. I literally just twist the grain bag it comes in to store it and 8 months later and the last Kölsch style I made was amazing. Having this sack of grain makes me confident in the beer I make and I’m happy I bought it. I highly recommend this grain and I’m excited to try other products from Viking. Cheers fellow brewers!!!

Works well for lagers and I use about 20% in IPA's too. Large kernels mill differently though. Great price.

Be wary of crushed grain quality
Really disappointed. Ordered grains crushed, most of what I received were hulls. Very little of the precious starchy center. Resulted in an OG that was 15 points below target. Waste of my time.

Malting my beer up! Great selections!
Planer malt was delivered in just a few days as promised, which was a pleasant surprise.
I'm moving from beer kits to trying my own recipes with local hops. The other malts I've used so far added rich flavors to my beer. Thumbs up from this beer maker.

Viking malts
I love Viking Malts. I purchase a 55 lb. sack at a time. The price per pound is amazing and keeps me brewing more often. For the price it pays for it self after three brews. Flavor is good and have had no issues with grain freshness. Would recommend!!!!
