June – Viking Pale Ale Malt

Viking Malt Pale Ale Malt is produced from 2-row barley.  After selected steeping and germination operations barley kernels are guided through steps to promote well modification and proteolysis. Germination is ended in kiln, where green malt is dried with carefully planned kilning program. The outcome after kilning can be said to be awesome. The odor of the malt after kiln is something to experience. But that is the maltster’s privilege.

Viking Pale Ale Malt is a malt with good properties giving easiness in brewing process. There is enough “everything” and it works well in single temperature or infusion mashing. The malt gives good but not too excessive malty flavor with low coloring value. Compared to regular Viking Pilsner Malt the kilning temperature is higher resulting somewhat higher color and lower dms potential.

Viking Malt Pale Ale malt is ideal for ales and special lagers. The usage rate is up to 100%.

June – Wheat Beer

Wheat beer is brewed with a large proportion of wheat malt in a malt bill and is typically a top-fermented beer. Within wheat beers there can be found 4 different main categories: Southern German Weissbier, Berliner Weisse, Belgian Witbier and American Wheat Beer.

Wheat beers can be cloudy and yeasty, clear after filtering, light colored and dark version, acidic but all of them with noticeable good head retention.

Wheat beer is a real thirst killer. Due the high  CO2 concentration the mouth feel is brisk and wheat beer is very refreshing to enjoy during hot summer days. The taste contains good balance of fruity esters and phenols. Banana, vanilla, citric and spicy are quite typical terms used when describing the taste. Typically the hops are not in a leading role in wheat beers.

Our malt of the month Viking Pale Ale Malt is a good choice in a wheat beer malt bill. It will support the brewing process by giving good activity, extracts, nice malty notes in taste not being effucive in anyway.
