Weyrman floor malted Pilsner
« on: May 03, 2016, 12:19:17 PM »
Going to brew a Helles with this today. I know, I really should be brewing a Pilsner but I have my heart set on a Helles. Will repost on my findings as day progresses. Recipe is 95% floor malted pils and 5% floor malted Munich.

I was curious about the diastatic power of this malt and almost through some regular pils malt in but hit my numbers no problem. Compared to Best Pils malt this one has a bit more depth in malt (wort) aroma. Sweet wet hay and rich malt aroma. I can't wait to taste the beer!

It's that "wet hay" that turned me off to Weyermann.  OTOH, their Barke pils is amazing.

I iused to use Weyerman almost exclusively (and some Castle) but when I started brewing commercially I switched to Best because of other malts I wanted and never looked back. I special ordered a pallet of this. Have to admit I am intrigued by this aroma for a Helles. Maybe I'll try a pallet of Burke for the Hellesbock I plan on brewing in a couple weeks.

I get some "husky" character from the Weyermann floor-malted Pils. It's not so much as to be off-putting, but I prefer Best or Avangard for my pale and amber lagers.

I will have to search out the Barke Pils once this sack of Avangard kicks.

The wort smelled awesome. I loved the malt aromas. Definitely a deeper malt character than the Best I am used too. I know for certain I won't be using it very often but I'm excited about it for this one off beer.

That's too bad, you let the ancient malt spirits escape.  The flavor of "it" has been lost.  ::)

I'm definitely ordering a bag of the  Barke for my next Pils.
