Schilll Kolsch Malt
« on: January 15, 2014, 08:48:47 PM »
Anyone have experience with this malt?  Sounds like kind of a super Vienna or a malt between Vienna or Munich.   Considering using it as a SMASH Maibock or Belgian Pale Ale.  Anyone have any experience or thoughts on this or this malt?.  Thanks.

I've not used it but have seen posts about it over the years. Consensus seems to have been that for a kolsch it is too dark to be used as the single base malt. But I don't recall anyone ever trying to use it in any other recipes. Sounds like a good experiment!

Yeah seems to be too dark for a base malt for a Kolsch. I used some Vienna in a kolsch so I could see replacing it with kolsch malt...

I like the idea of a a SMASH though

Our LHBS did a side-by-side with 100% kolsch malt and 100% Weyermann Pils.

Definitely too dark for a kolsch. I also thought the kolsch malt didn't have the flavor impact I expect from a continental malt. The pilsner malt gave more overall malt character than the kolsch malt.

Possibly Vienna is a "Super" kolsch malt?
