Weyermann Bohemian Floor Malted Bohemian Malt DP
« on: December 30, 2015, 11:24:06 PM »
Hello every one :)


Well went to the my local brew store to get my ingredients for a Milk Stout
they were out of the main malt I was going to use: Dinglemans Pilsner malt

Instead the brew store  staff substituted  Weyermann Floor Malted Bohemian malt

Im worried about the DP of this malt  :(Note: I  mash in/ mash out in Round water cooler 10 gallon
Planned Mash schedule 60/70 mins @ 154F - 1.55qts water/ lb of grain
60 min boil...
should I go to a 90min mash with 90 min boil???

Heres the grist, Milk stout

54.5% - 6 lbs Weyermann Floor malted Bohemian Pilsner 1.8L
11.4% - 2lbs Dark Munich weyermann 10L
11.4% - 1.25lb Flaked Barley
4.5% - 0.5lb Uk crystal 60
6.8% - 0.75lb  Uk Choc. Malt 425L
4.5% - 0.5lb Patagonia Negra Malt 340L

I can't say anything definitive but my guess is you will have no problems. I no-sparge (BIAB) mashed a 1.050 saison 147ºF for 45 min and 158ºF for 20 min. and got conversion at 100% of potential. The grist was as follows.

85% Wey. Floor Malted Pils
10% Flaked Wheat
5% Flaked Oats

My question is : does this stuff still need to be step mashed, or has it been modified enough nowadays to not need the step mash ? I used to read comments from various retailers saying that it needed step mashed. I don't see those comments now from retailers.

I have step mashed it and single infused it both with predictability and success. I have heard of others doing both with no problems. I know Weyermann has a recommended step mashing schedule that they propose using on a czech pils. Is it absolutely necessary? I cannot answer.

If you've single infused it with good results that answers my question. Thanks for the info !

+ 1 to the above. I have always avoided it due to weyermanns recommendation to step mash, but from what I have heard it's not a problem to use a single infusion. I have heard the character of he floor malted stuff is nice, so I might need to give it a go soon.

Weyermann makes no mention of needing a step mash on their website currently and states that it can be used up to 100% of your grist.

Personally, I used this for all my lagers until about a year ago when I got a good deal on a sack of Avangard. I did a single infusion at 153F every time and never had conversion or attenuation issues.

I was wanting to buy the Weyermann last weekend and the salesman insisted that the Dingemans was the floor malted. I didn't think that was right but listened to him anyway. Wrong  :-\

I like the Wyermann. I think it adds just a wee bit more to the beer than other pilsners

Here is my lot of bopils.

Great info, thanks for sharing. Kohlbach Index of 41.2%, so it's pretty well-modified. Seems to match my experience with this malt.

That said, I really dislike this malt. Its indeed well modified,with the high kolbach and low protein. I get funk from this... Wet hay and apple peel, I call it "dirty".
