I was thinking about it. We will see because I normally do not buy grain from there.

Thank you for O-fest feedback. It is almost gone.

Has anyone actually tried some of this yet?  How does it really compare to the Best's and Weyerman's of the world?
Thanks
You can do things two ways, the right way or the wrong way.
Or you can do things my way - which is like the wrong way but faster.

Last summer our local guild sponsored a "Replicale" where everyone made a 100% pilsner ipa using the Czech pils malt from MCMS, White Labs 001, and then the brewer's choice of hops. We made ours using Galaxy. We're a small primitive brewery so we did a single infusion. I didn't notice a huge difference in yield, quality, or taste between this malt and Best Malz which we normally use.

I use Weyernmann F-M Bohemian pilsner malt on out Pilsner. I blend it with 50% of Weyernmann Bohemian Pilsner malt. I would also agree that I am not necessary sure what difference it makes.

Leos,

Do you have any idea what the typical Kolbach index is for the Prostejov CZ Pils? Did CMG send any data other than protein content and CG extract? I'm wondering if this is undermodified CZ malt, or if it's more modern CZ malt.

I also use a blend of Weyermann FM pilsner and a German pilsner in our Neü Bohemian Pilsner. Love the FM stuff, but it would be cool to see how the Prostejov malt compares.

I do not think that any Czech malts are under modify (two negatives). No I do not have analyses for it.

I have read the definition and specification for "české Pivo" that is EU regional protection. They had malt section and it was from lower to median of modern malts.

Was I clear enough?
