Belgian light-coloured base malt. Kilning at up to 90-95°C.
Usually used as a base malt or in combination with Pilsen 2RS malt to impart a richer malt flavour and additional colour. Being deeper in colour, this malt can add a golden hue to the wort. It is used with strong yeasts to produce amber and bitter beers. Château Pale Ale malt is kilned longer and is usually better modified, providing a more pronounced flavour than Pilsen 2RS. The enzymatic activity of Château Pale Ale malt is sufficient when used with large proportion of non-enzymatic specialty malts.
Pale ale styles and bitter beers, most traditional English beer styles. Up to 100% of the mix.
Storage and Shelf life
Malt should be stored in a clean, cool (<22°C) and dry (<35RH%) area. If these conditions are observed, we recommend using all whole kernel products within 24 months from the date of manufacture and all milled products within 3 months.
