The different types of malt Dark malts are used for brown beers or stouts, while pale malts are used in lagers and Pilsners. Continental brewers traditionally used caramel malts, while British brewers preferred glass malts. Nowadays, most malters no longer distinguish between caramelized malts and crystalline malts and, most of the time, they use caramel malt to refer to these malts. Other names that can be used to refer to caramel malts are CaramUnich, CaraVienne, Special B, Carastan, Cara and Extra Special.
Pilsner malt, being the lightest of the base malts (1.4-2.2 L), has a clean malty aroma with qualities of white bread or crackers. The flavors can be quite subtle, which is why it is often used in continental beers such as Pilsners, German lagers and some Belgian beers. The maceration program described above is typical of many lager beers, but it does not produce the intensely malted, rich and complex beers that can be achieved with maceration by decoction. The decoction system can make most lagers more complex; with some malts, it can produce a slight increase in extract.
For malted but light-colored lagers, a single decoction is sufficient. The decoction can be made to increase the temperature of the puree from protein rest to saccharification, or from saccharification to maceration. In the latter case, a decoction can be used “in a boiler”, which avoids the need for a specific decoction pot. To do this, let the saccharification rest until it is finished and then transfer approximately two-thirds of the puree to the filter tank; let the remaining third boil carefully.
Continuous agitation is important to prevent them from burning, especially in lighter colored beers. After boiling for 20 minutes, combine the two mash and proceed to filter. Very dark, malted beers, such as Bocks, require double or even triple decoctions. The decoctions are extracted, allowed to be saccharified and then boiled.
The decoctions are extracted between the protein and the remains of saccharification (first decoction) and again to go from saccharification to maceration (second decoction). A triple decoction, typical of the Urquell process, also uses a decoction to move from the rest of the beta-glucans to the protein rest. Needless to say, these many steps lead to a very long preparation day (1,. At this point, the beer is fully (or almost completely) fermented and the true storage period begins.
To prepare beer, slowly lower the temperature by 2 to 4 °F per day until the beer reaches 31 °F (-1 °C) or as close to that temperature as possible. Let beer sit at 31 °F (— 1 °C) for 4 to 12 weeks; generally, the longer the better. As regular taste tests will reveal, the rough edge of beer attenuates and softens over time. At some point, usually 2 to 6 weeks after fermentation, it becomes clear that the beer has become a smooth, malted and rich beer with few residual fermentation flavors, such as diacetyl or sulfur.
At this point, the beer is ready to be packaged. Vienna Lager by John Palmer (malt extract). This malt is basically the same as the standard two-row malt, but it is cooked at a slightly higher temperature. This results in a darker color (measuring around 3 to 4 degrees Lovibond) and also changes the flavor profile.
Pale Ale malt can be very tasty and malty, with a good malt scent. It is usually the most modified of all base malts and works well with any maceration program, from a single infusion to a gradual maceration. It has a large amount of enzymatic power and can convert itself and some extra adjuvants, up to 50 percent of the total grain. As the name suggests, this malt is mainly intended for brewing beers, especially traditional English beers.
It's too dark for a pilsner. It can also be an excellent choice for Belgian-style amber beers. The main purpose of Vienna is to make Viennese-style lagers. These beers are similar to Oktoberfests (also known as Märzen) but have a lower alcohol content.
Trying to find a real “Vienna” these days is difficult. Samuel Adams Lager is actually a good representation of a Viennese-style beer (it probably has too many hops to be a real Viennese one), but they don't market it as such. Even if you don't want to prepare a Viennese beer, Viennamalt has other uses. It is generally used as part of the grain spike in Oktoberfests and other German beers (but not in pilsners).
You can also use it in any other recipe where you want the taste of Viennese malt. You can also make a beer with 100 percent Vienna (some brewers use it to make an amber beer), but I wouldn't recommend it. Between five and ten percent of Vienna is a good starting point when used as a special malt for flavoring. A Viennese lager beer, on the other hand, could use between 30 and 40 percent of Vienna as one of its base malts, and the rest of the normal two-row milling.
Munich is a very useful malt for whole grain brewers. It is more baked than Vienna malt and covers the range of 6 to 30 degrees Lovibond. However, the most typical range is 8 to 9 degrees (Lovibond). When someone refers to Munich malt, they are usually referring to the lighter versions that measure 9 degrees Lovibond or lower.

Munich's classic lager beer is Dunkel, and 100 percent medium colored Munich malt can be used to make this style. In practice, it doesn't differ much from the lighter-colored Munich malt, although soft malt from the United Kingdom will acquire some of the complex English character due to the region in which it is cultivated. If you use lager yeast for lagers, start the fermentation between 70° and 72° F, then lower it to 54° F once fermentation has begun in earnest.
Under most homebrewing conditions, beer is separated from the primary yeast and left to rest in a separate container, such as a Cornelius keg or a closed carafe. Although a decent beer can be produced from a two-row domestic malt, a Pils malt (especially the German Pils) will produce a more authentic version. Many styles of beer, such as IPA, were traditionally made with only base malts, and you can make a large number of styles with 100% base malt. Some people argue that in the past, the traditional lagering process was imposed on brewers because they had inferior raw materials.
This malt generally tastes finer and crisper than regular two-row beer, which is transferred to beer. The disadvantage of this faster process is that potentially more esters and higher alcohols are found, and this can result in a fruitier, more alcoholic lager beer instead of a more neutral traditional beer, such as when using the slower method. Good lagers are hard to find in the United States, and until recently, it was rare to find many homebrewers who understood the subtleties of brewing lager beer. In the next installment, I'll discuss more of the chemical changes that occur during lagering and explore some alternative lagering techniques.
In traditional lagering, beer is primarily fermented until the yeast has metabolized most of the sugars. Barley has excellent enzymes and produces a soft, sweet and clean malt flavor, making it very versatile for creating beer styles. Hansen could now re-launch Carlsberg's positive type 1 yeast type 1 (lower fermented lager yeast strain), which became known as Saccharomyces Pastorianus. Although these beers have different recipe formulas, the common ingredient is usually European lager beer or Pils malts.
