DP of Vienna Malt
« on: December 11, 2014, 03:06:10 PM »
I use Great Western Vienna as the base malt for my oat pale ale. My efficiency is not great and I was curious about the DP of the base malt but cannot find it. I have seen that most Vienna malts around 40-50?

I suppose I should just email them...

if you have a lot# you can plug it in to this and DP is one of the returned statistics:

I don't. I just get it from the bin at the LHBS. I have emailed them.

I think my DP is fine for the batch but just looking for excuses for poor efficiency. I won't go down that road with this thread though...

yeah should not be the issue even at 100%. just might have a lower yield than what you were expecting?

FWIW, depending on the actual lot you have, I see ranges of 117-156 DP.

Country Malt replied to my email

"It ranges from 134-163"

Apparently I didn't look hard enough.

Do Continental Vienna Malts have lower DP? Beersmith gives a general range of 40-50 for Vienna malts in general I think...

Possibly, if only because the NA Vienna malt could be six-row. It wouldn't make a practical difference in mashing though.

If it's 6 row it should have a higher DP, right?
