Many of the craft maltsters do make a domestic pilsner. I'm fermenting a saison brewed with pilot malts pils- we'll see...

Mecca Grade pils malt may be the best pils malt I've ever used.

FWIW, I use a lot of Canada Malt, both their Pils and Pale Ale malt, and am satisfied, for my purposes.

I doubt my taste buds would detect what you guys are describing as subtle differences. I can get a bag of Canada Malt at my LHBS, which is a 2 hour drive. Its from North America and has a good price point.

I tried Avangard once, it was OK, but not as good as Best or Weyermann.

Haven't seen a craft maltster in SC yet. Will definitely try one when available.
Cheers,

Roger

I brewed my new Kolsch with Avangard. Weyermann blows it away IMO. There are differences for sure.

+1. I definitely prefer Weyermann.

Yup. The Barke even more so.

I rarely use domestic 2-row. I reach for Maris Otter or golden promise for British styles and weyermann or castle pils for Belgian style. I've been using Swaen Pilsner a lot lately too and it's really nice for the price!

I recently got a bunch of Swaen malts and I am pretty happy with the quality. I've been using about 60:40 or 70:30 of their Pils:Pale Ale malts for the base of my light beers (lagers, saisons, etc.), and I really like what I'm getting from it. There's a very nice crackery flavor that I get from that combo.
