Sugar Creek Pilsner malt is a locally malted version of the wonderfully light and grainy version that light lagers and pilsners have been made from for hundreds of years! This malt is made of 2 row Conlon barley grown right here in Indiana. A 1.5-2 Lovibond grain, it gives a lighter color to beers, leaving them crisp and golden! This malt is bursting with grain flavor, which works well in a range of lagers, from the lighter Pilsen beers to festbiers such as Marzens and Oktoberfest biers. As the lighter grain can lead to precursors of DMS, a 90 minute boil is recommended on beers where a large percentage of pilsner malt is used as the base. Recreate all your favorite traditional lager styles, or add a light golden color to your ales with this versatile malt from Sugar Creek Malting!
