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

4.3 °L - Viking Malt - Viking Smoked Malt is produced from 2-row spring malting barley, null-LOX variety. The flavors of these malts are as with pilsner malt with rather strong smoky flavor depending on type of wood used for smoking. Viking uses apple, beech, cherry, sweet cherry and pear wood delivered from ecological, clean areas. Due to relatively low processing temperatures, enzymatic activities and other good brewing properties are maintained.

In brewing, Smoked Malt can be considered as pilsner malt with a special aroma as Smoked Malt's flavor and taste profile is not too overwhelming.

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.

Does the bag indicate which wood(s) were used in that batch? The descriptions indicate it is not necessarily Beech only, but may include pear, apple, or cherry woods as well, and Viking's site suggests that the wood types used may vary by season or batch.

BEST ANSWER: This particular malt is smoked with Beechwood only. They produce the malts seasonally, but this exact part number will always get you Beechwood smoked malt.
