Viking Malt is the leading Nordic malting company which offers a broad range of malt varieties to both small and large breweries. History of Viking Malt dates back to 1883 when distillery named Lahden Polttimo was found in Finland. Today we have three malthouses around the Baltic rim, one in Sweden, Finland and Lithuania each. We produce annually more than 350 000 tons of malts and other cereal products for brewers and distillers all over the world. Our selection of malts differs from pale basic barley malts to specials like dark roasted malts.
The world of malts is rich, not only because of the wide variety of production methods used in manufacturing different types of malts, but also due to the possibility of using a variety of cereals for malting and brewing. Sometimes, these malts are called special malts, but due to the increased usage of these products in the production of so called standard lager beers, we would rather refer to them as different malts. This small lecture describes the wide variety of malts from which today’s brewers can choose when brewing high quality beers, not only for beer enthusiasts but also for brewing volume products. Main focus is put on the flavour effects of different malts and examples of main malt types are also offered for small tasting.
You are welcome to hear and taste different malts!
