Product details

Produced from quality Barke® two-row spring barley. Perfect foundation grist for all lagers. Excellent modification and favorable protein and glucan levels. Excellent lautering properties. Provides finished beer with substantial body and mouthfeel, as well as good foam development and head retention. Very flexible grain with high extract efficiency for reliable lager-making in any brew house, including pub ale systems. Yields optimum results for any process from single-step to multistep infusion, to decoction. Flavor: intense malt aromas.

Barke® is a variety with all-round advantages: In the malt and brew houses, it excels because of its large kernel diameter, good kernel homogeneity, good germination potential, superior diastatic power, excellent extract yield, high apparent attenuation, moderate levels of soluble nitrogen, and low beta-glucan values. In the finished beer, Barke® contributes a good body, a rich and deep malt aroma, and a creamy head with good foam stability.

Malty!

This is an excellent pils malt. I brew mostly lagers. I've been using Barke Pils, Vienna, and Munich malts for 3 years now. I have been buying the pils by the 55# sack each year. As other reviewers have stated, it has a very malty profile. It's perfect for maltier brews like Munich Helles, Festbier, Czech Premium Pale Lager, or Maibock. I've used 100% Barke Pils in all four of those styles. (I wouldn't recommend 100% Barke Pils for a Maibock if you plan to enter it in a competition: the SRM will be too low.) You can also use it to increase the malt flavor in lighter lager styles, but you'll want to reduce the percentage that you use. I used 100% Barke Pils in an International Pale Lager and in competition it was deemed "too flavorful for style." In lighter brews like that I'd keep the Barke Pils below 25% or so.
