Briess Pilsen is an American lager-style malt. It is very light in color and produces a light, clean, crisp wort with a delicate malty flavor. Made from 2-row barley varieties, Briess Pilsen has a slightly lower protein content and a slightly higher yield than 6-row base malts. Briess Pilsen is a suitable base malt for all styles and an excellent choice for lager beers. The light character allows the the full flavor of specialty malts or other ingredients to shine through.
