Roasted Barley - Viking Malt

Roasted Barley - Viking Malt

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

338 °L - Viking Malt - Viking Roasted Barley is produced by roasting good quality malting barley grains. The roasting process is similar to that of Black Malt with extra care taken to not burn the grain. Final temperature is more than 392°F. The flavor of Roasted Barley is harsh and more bitter than that of black malt. Burnt and smoky flavors are strong.

Roasted Barley is used in dark beers like stouts and porters, mainly for its strong coloring ability. Roasted barley will impart a dry flavor and substantial color.

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.

This stuff has an amazing aroma and flavor. I had sampled it prior to cooking, I could eat it like sunflower seeds. Great smoke with hints of chocolate and coffee. Cant wait to see how the Bourbon turns out.
