Vienna Malt is a superb example of this classic malt. Less sweet than Pale Ale Malt, it is a rich malty 2-Row base malt that offers complexity and depth with a toasted note at the finish for your classic Vienna, Oktoberfest and Marzen beers. It finishes exceptionally clean and, at 3.5º Lovibond, contributes light golden hues. Use in any beer style that benefits from rich malty character. Sufficient enzyme level to support the inclusion of even the most demanding specialty malts without extending the brewing cycle.
Vienna malt is kiln dried at a higher temperature than pale malt yet still retains sufficient enzyme power for use as 60-100% of total mash grist. The enzyme content can support up to 40% adjuncts or specialty malts. For pilsner styles, use 10 to 30% in the mash. Vienna is a rich, aromatic malt that will lend a light amber to deep orange color, a warm, malty flavor, and some body to your Vienna or Marzen beers. May be steeped.
