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.

Results in beers with great head formation and lacing
I have brewed two beers thus far using Viking Pilsner. One as 100% grist, the other 50%. Both exhibited the nicest head I have ever gotten on a beer. The resulting head was very white, dense, and rocky and persisted practically until the glass was empty. The flavor is best described as crisp. My efficiency fell somewhat short of expected for both, but not by enough to be problematic. All in all, a worthwhile pilsner to try. I plan on experimenting subbing in a few pounds into future beers with other base malts to see if I can get the nice head. Presently using carafoam with good results for this purpose.

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.
