Brewmaster is excited to announce that we are carrying this great Northern European malt. The malt is warehoused in our California and Pennsylvania warehouses and offered in 1lb, 5lb, 10lb and 55lb sacks. Viking Malt has been selling extremely well to both home and pro brewers alike because of its amazing selection (36 Malts to choose from), quality and price.
Great Selection, Great Quality
With a Viking appropriate statement of "Discovering the World of Malt" the diversity and selection of malts is amazing. While it has only been introduced to the US recently, Viking has a long history dating back five family generations to 1883. They are the largest producer of specialty malt in the world and the 9th largest overall malt producer. They operate six malt houses in Northern Europe and their largest customer is the famous Carlsberg brewery. Viking only sources non GMO modified barley from local farmers located close to their six malting houses. Additionally, the cold winters of Northern Europe provide a natural pest reduction, greatly lessening the need to use chemical pesticides.
Viking Null-Lox Malts stops Trans-2-nonenal, Slow Staling
Viking is also known for growing the malt varietal Charles, a "null-lox" malt. Null-lox malts do not contain the enzyme lipoxygenase (lox) which leads to trans-2-nonenal in aged beer. Trans-2-nonenal is responsible for beer staling and the associated flavors of cardboard and paper. Look for these in the "Pilsner Zero" and the Pale Malt Zero" varietals. These are ideal for brewers wanting to improve shelf life and reduce oxidation off-flavors.
