    Favorite Pilsner Malt

    So what is it? Briess, Great Western, Canada Malting, Gambrinus, Best, Bairds, or Franco-Belges? Why?

    Thanks

    pils malt

    Have to second the Weyermann. We produce a pilsner year round and several other lagers throughout the year. Weyermann has given us a very consistent and authentic flavor profile.

    Rahr Premium Pilsen Malt works wonderfully for me across a range of German-ish and Belgian-style brews among others.

    I've tried many different ones. Supply issues forced me away from Weyermann, but I'm back, despite it being a lot of work to get it. It's definitely the best I've tried.

    Agreed. Weyerman is excellent. Great flavor and it's highly modified allowing you to get that extra dry finish.

    I have done a Maybock with Weyermann malts and a second batch with Schill (formerly Global). The Schill had a slightly higher S.G. but also finished a tad higher. Schill barley had a slightly sweeter flavor before mashing in. I get them both from BSG.
